World Health Organization Western Pacific Region

World Health Day 2013

WHO Regional Director for the Western Pacific Dr Shin Young-soo praised President Aquino's courageous pursuit of health policies that will save millions of lives. Among these policies, Dr Shin said, were a reform of tobacco and alcohol taxes to generate revenue for universal health care and an unwavering position on reproductive health that will mean fewer tragedies at childbirth, healthier children, and give families power to make their own family planning decisions.
