HealthnDevelopment expert , Dr Ntuba Thompson Akwo calls for humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan

The expected has happened in Afghanistan after the pulling out of the USA forces , following the deal that the administration of former president Trump signed with the Taliban for a smooth withdrawal , which president Joe Biden carried through .
The united states led a global coalition of willing nations , including NATO , into Afghanistan to root out the Bin Ladin terrorists groups that were hiding in the country following the 2001 September 11 terrorists attacks at the USA world trade centers in New York .
It must be noted that both republicans and democrats voted for the anti terror war initiated by former president George Bush .
The Taliban has taken over as expected , creating great panic and confusion , especially as the fragile democratic system that the American government put in place is not withstanding the cultural make up of the communities and people .
The people are now fleeing from the Taliban and need refuge in many countries besides their humanitarian needs or human rights to food , medicines , shelter and education .
Dr Ntuba Akwo Thompson is calling on the the united nations to ask fast , working with the USA , NATO and other UN member states to help the people of Afghanistan .
The USA made a deal with the Taliban because they foresaw this coming and must ask all sides including the Taliban to come together to form a transition government like happened in Egypt.
This is not the time for persons in the USA to blame others .
Americans wanted out of the Afghanistan war, for so much money was lost and American lives sacrificed .
Americans believed the mission to Afghanistan was already accomplished . The united states did not go to Afghanistan to take over the country , form governments and run them .
The is no blame for republicans nor democrats . The republican government of former president Trump pulled the American soldiers out with a deal with the Taliban and president Biden Followed up on that.
The people of Afghanistan deserves humanitarian assistance and should be be given that , including refuge in the USA and other UN countries like Turkey that has accepted to help if Afghanistan ask for help .

GLOBAL HEALTH COMMODITIES IN GLOBAL HEALTH DIPLOMACY.

Global health commodities are traded in the international markets and global health experts, with much insight in the working of international trade and investments in health care commodities, continue to play a vital role in making the world healthier.
Research and development of global health commodities like vaccines and therapeutics require a lot of money which may go into billions of US dollars of investments.
The global health body of the UN [WHO] has invested many billions of dollars in getting covid 19 health commodities to member states though much is still expected as it is said.
The current situation in India that has caused the serum institute of India to fall short of producing the required covid 19 vaccines for export is troubling.
Middle and low-income countries are asking those restrictions on health commodities intellectual property rights be lifted so that covid vaccines can be made on all the continents.
Sinopharm from china and Sputnik from Russia are covid vaccines in circulation in different countries. it must be noted that sovereign states have the right to cater to the medical and health needs of their populations, reasons why certain nations cannot go into Russia and or china and say use Moderna or J and J vaccines,
In global health diplomacy, international trade laws and restrictions may be a problem. Iran blamed the USA during wha73 for trade restrictions imposed on their country through organizations like the world trade organization and the united nations, saying it has led to many of their nationals dead from covid 19.
The world health organization is the main global health diplomacy body and in its,s WHA74, will be addressing some of these issues related to trade in medical and health commodities, asking that covid 19 vaccines technologies be shared freely with member states and restrictions in intellectual property rights over covid 19 vaccines be lifted.

DR NTUBA THOMPSON AKWO ,A GLOBAL HEALTH LEADER CALLS ON THE US GOVERNMENT TO EXPAND HEALTH INSURANCE

Dr. Ntuba Akwo Thompson , a licensed physician and practice of medicine and population health in multiple countries and certified professional and expert in global health [USA] has called on the USA government or president Joe Biden,s administration to increase the number of people with health insurance in the nation.
Dr. Ntuba Akwo Thompson has over the years worked in Washington DC USA with the leadership of the congressional black caucus and the congressional Hispanic caucus institute on minority health and disparities issues in all states in the USA.
In the recent 6 states travel of Dr Ntuba Akwo to Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon, and Washington state, the problem of lack of insurance by many Americans was told him.
Many in the united states accuse others who advocate for an increase in the numbers of residents with health insurance as promoters of socialized medicine, an accusation based on ignorance. socialized medicine requires the government to take over all aspects of the health care system and run it, a situation that will never happen in the USA.
The covid 19 pandemic has exposed lots of health disparity issues in the USA and we know that a higher percentage of people who died from covid in the USA were minorities including blacks, and latinos .
The underlying conditions that led or contributed to many deaths among minorities like diabetes could be easily prevented and or managed and controlled if most or all residents in the USA especially in the black and latino communities had health insurance .
America can provide health insurance to all it,s reisdents as a national health policy though the major set back is lack of political will.
Insured populations seek health care more and do better when the is a pandemic because their immune system is not constantly under attack and depressed .

DR NTUBA AKWO GLOBAL HEALTH EXPERT SAYS NATIONS MUST CONSIDER GLOBAL HEALTH AS HUMAN RIGHTS .

DR NTUBA AKWO GLOBAL HEALTH EXPERT SAYS NATIONS MUST CONSIDER GLOBAL HEALTH AS HUMAN RIGHTS .

As international global health experts begin deliberations to make the world healthy, an international multiple nations licensed physician and certified professional and expert global health [usa ] , and international leader and communicator, adviser of prime ministers and presidents, Dr. Ntuba Akwo Thompson has called the 194 members of the united nations, world health organization to consider health as human rights so that universal health care based on primary health care can be made available to all global citizens.
In the united states, health is accessed based on who has health insurance and what type.
When some people decide that even the Obama care that helps poor people in America especially the white poor that make the highest percentage of the poor uninsured is to be taken away by the wicked and selfish, something is wrong with health governance and provision here.
Greatness is not the noise made and foolish pride paraded in the media but for nations to able to take care of their down and out of nations. Lack of addiction and substance abuse health care provision in the USA has millions of AMERICANS homeless most living in bushes and under bridges in their own feces and urine, in unsanitary places.
The question today to nations is " what is your position among the 10 best nations in health care provision and access".
It is time the world health assembly start asking member states the number of the poor and marginalized insured in their countries before they address the assembly because the assembly is for best practices not noise making and foolish pride speak.
In Africa, they steal donor global issues money, stash it in foreign banks in Switzerland, and Europe or USA, calling themselves rich people, yea rich thieves, and demons killing their people, who come talking rubbish at WHA.
Nations like the USA that does not provide universal health care to it citizens, can never be the first 5 in global health care.
Climate change affects the health and life of mostly the poor in nations and the time to talk is over.
it is time to provide another 1 billion people with health care, time to provide to prevent another one billion from emergencies and pandemic and provide health insurance to another billion globally.
Successes of nations are not judged from the abundance of the 1% but the universal health care provision through universal insurance.

Many are watching the rockets fired in Isreal by Islamic Hamas and the Israeli response and wondering if these recent killings from both sides are because of recent provocations and the need for self-defense?.

Dr. Ntuba Akwo Thompson when attending J street conference in Washington DC USA, did all to talk to liberal parliamentarians from Israel, asking them why is it that the is always bloodshed in the middle east around when Netanyahu and the zionists are struggling with winning presidential elections and or having other parties to join them to form coalition governments and they responded to the questions.
Dr, Akwo Thompson Ntuba was told that it was similar to what conservatives do in the USA, they said, people fear those who are called evil people and it pays each side in the conflict to use the fear of the other people groups to win elections.
Netanyahu who Trump supported and who supported Trump over president Biden has struggled lately with winning elections with a majority to allow him to form a government, so he had decided to provoke the Arabs and Muslims especially Iran, knowing what will happen by doing that. Netanyahu has calculated that Hezbollah and or Hamas that has a relationship with Iran will be forced into attacking Israel so that Netanyahu can use disproportionate force in striking the Palestinians with the calculations that the opposition may join to condemn him and he can say to the Israelis that look at those who want Muslims and Palestinians to kill you, these weaklings cannot be your presidential leaders.
Netanyahu was one of the first to congratulate Joe Biden, even before the courts started looking at the Trump petitions calculating that, no matter the outcome, he already had Trump in his corner and so he should be the first to congratulate Biden, if things turn out that Biden is finally declared the winner, he wins both ways.
Before Pope Francis went to Iraq, Biden already did some strikes in Syria against Iran militia in the region, part of the reason why the pope kept asking for peace in the region.
Stop looking at the recent attack as the provocation that led Netanyahu to declare an all-out war.
Netanyahu needed a war at this time and no person else.
The constant attacking of Iranian targets by Netanyahu under Trump had a purpose, which is that of provoking the proxies of Iran to attack Israel so that America will be forced to take sides, and if Biden did not support Israel fully, then conservatives would say look at weak Biden against Israel.
Biden has played into the hands of Netanyahu by taking sides in his statement while his secretary of the state is saying all sides should deescalate.
Both Palestinians and Israelis were made in the image of God, we in America believe.
The United Nations is asking for restraining from all parties including Isreal and they must respect the United Nations that rebirthed that nation in that region.
Hamas you have done what Netanyahu wanted and see how much blood you have brought to your people and destruction to your lands. Netanyahu, you got the war you wanted, you have shed enough blood and republican America and Trump are with you. Hopefully, you can now win the presidential elections and find enough opposition to join you to form a coalition government
.Understand that Zionism is not Christianity.
You all leave American taxpayers out of your wickedness.

2 Biden Pressured to Take Sides in Clash Between Israelis and Palestinians, Wall Street Journal
“The Biden administration is urging a de-escalation in deadly clashes between the Israeli military and the Islamist Hamas movement, while some Democratic allies call for stronger support for Palestinians and some Republicans want more forceful backing of Israel. […] ‘The conflict only deepens when the U.S. backs away,’ said Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of J Street, a left-leaning Jewish group in Washington that opposes expanding Israeli settlements in the West Bank.”
