As you know, in addition to teaching in the field of laser therapy, I am focused on health and health promotion.
Years ago, I graduated from Public Health at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, and after coming to Great Britain, I became a Fellow at RSPH.
Health and improvement of living conditions have always been at the center of my interest. It is not only about wellbeing in general, related to, for example, aesthetics, but also, for example, equalization of educational opportunities (hence my support for the @Edu Africa foundation). The Global Plan of Action for Healthy Living and Wellbeing for All brings together 12 multilateral health, development and humanitarian agencies to better support countries and accelerate progress towards the health-related SDGs.
At the World Health Summit, representatives of the signatory agencies provided updated information on the Action Plan and its challenges and successes.
As we know, health is not only the absence of disease, but broadly understood social, mental and economic well-being. I am well aware that it is extremely difficult for us to operate in the aesthetic industry.
We live in constant stress, we are afraid for our future, for our and our loved ones’ health and life, and in the light of recent events in Poland – for basic human (women’s) rights and for self-decision.
Currently, in very difficult times for all of us – the Covid-19 pandemic, and additionally, the dramatic situation of women around the world does allow me to briefly report on the World Health Summit, in which I participated on October 25-27 2020.
In the post-COVID-19 era, hospital care systems will be overwhelmed by a serious backlog in the management of non-COVID-19 related conditions. This will be most relevant in low and middle income countries.
Now is the right time to use the momentum of the COVID-19 crisis to a paradigm shift in health system design, where health promotion, so-called primary prevention, and innovative primary care systems will play a leading role, drawing on experiences from the Women’s Health Program. .
The post-COVID-19 era is a unique opportunity to increase aid effectiveness by overcoming institutional barriers between operating health agencies, national governments, NGOs, and academia and business.
It is absolutely necessary for the health community, not only academic and medical, but also all enterprises and the general business to cooperate. Cooperation should take place not only at the global, continental or national level, but also in small communities. Each of us has a real impact on our health and the health of our loved ones. And it all begins with ourselves. As women, we have a special power. We can create, invent and implement our innovations and ideas. We can share what we have the best and give the best we have. Every day we are at the center of the lives of our families, our relatives, friends, our small community.
Putting primary prevention a key role to play is one of the main lessons that can already be learned in managing the COVID-19 health crisis.
High population acceptance of basic preventive measures and high-quality primary health care is essential to keep inpatient and life saving systems functioning.
Only collective behavioral changes can have a significant impact on health. As with female cancer and UNCOMMONABLE DISEASES in general, health promotion and primary prevention, such as HPV vaccination and screening programs through innovative testing technologies, are known to be effective.
But every day, we can take care of our physical health, stay in touch with each other – and thus, take care of our well-being and mental health! In this way we can support each other, but we can only do it through mutual kindness and kindness.
We need to start with the changes in collective health behavior. All you have to do is to want it.
Knowledge transfer innovations will enable the development of a global community of healthcare providers that will lead the necessary changes in the level of primary care and in which women’s health will initiate changes in the healthcare system.
Let’s use our time to act to improve the health of ourselves and our loved ones. It all starts with ourselves.
