"Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity," as defined by the World Health Organization in its 1946 charter. Sages in the Yellow Emperor era of ancient China proclaimed, “The best doctors cure the non-sick.”
Yet modern health care system is generally focused to bring people out of sickness. Indeed, to bring people out of sickness is already such a daunting task. However, in today’s stage of human development and consciousness, we should and we are able to address the issue of “curing the non-sick.”
In the United States, the Positive Health concept emerged in the early 2000s as spearheaded by the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania. It proposes an innovative approach to health and wellbeing; it starts and works with the positive or good aspects of the human person, and builds on those positive attributes to help achieve and maintain good health. It is a multidisciplinary approach integrating medicine, psychology, sports science, public health, and anthropology, etc. to examine what it means to be healthy, above and beyond the absence of diseases.
Medical and health experts from China and other countries are in the process of creating alternative systems of “Curing the non-sick,” combing modern medical sciences and wisdom and techniques from traditional medicines. HHO works with international experts in this field in building positive health systems to uplift the health and wellbeing of people, in different age and social groups.
We are now in a dark moment of the Covid-19 pandemic. To varying degrees people across all borders are being infected with the virus, many have lost their lives; and it strikes any and all people regardless. When the world is engaged in a life-and-death rescue regardless of race, color, culture background, or political standpoints, it is indeed a vivid manifestation of the international humanitarian spirit, a people-oriented, mission-shared worldwide cooperation. The situation, however, could be made to help promote lasting peace on earth and help build a common future for the mankind if we cope well.
The pandemic is fierce, and it will not disappear immediately. It is hard to say if it will last 10 years or 100 years… We in the global village must learn to live with it. Fortunately, the body has the immune system as a natural defense barrier; a powerful immune capacity will fend off even tough invading viruses and bacteria. In addition, a strong mental stamina will also cut down the virus' ability to attack. We can say, strengthening immunity is to give life a real-time backup!
Optimal immunity is also a long-term goal in the health of an individual. In order to help make positive progress in global immunity, Human Health Organization calls for an international partnership for immunity, which will have the following objectives and characteristics.
Advocacy for exemplary products for improving immune functions and formulation of related guidelines and good practices: the platform will feature international endorsement of products and establishment of guidelines as coordinated by Human Health Organization, which will be conducted by medicinal, nutritional, health and gourmet experts from around the world. Manufacturers and products selected into the partnership shall meet the qualifications and standards set by the platform. Meanwhile, they will receive certain privileges and benefits. The platform is headquartered in San Diego, California, USA, with convenient access for international development and global business stature; San Diego is also home to one of the world's top biomedicine research and development centers (biotech valley).
Improving immunity, fighting viruses, and health for everyone are universal concerns. Your valuable suggestions and collaboration are welcome so that we could together make the greatest contribution to enhancing immunity to fight viruses for all people.
In order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and protect vulnerable countries, the World Health Organization in a global leadership role has launched a series of preventive and response measures to quickly establish international coordination, expand preventive and response actions and accelerate key research and innovation projects and programs, as manifested by the WHO COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan. On February 11-12, 2020, WHO convened the COVID-19 Research and Innovation Forum; on March 13 it launched the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund to receive donations from private individuals, corporations and institutions.
Facing the severe epidemic situation, strengthening communication and collaboration across the international community and mobilizing resources and fundraising become more critical in effectively fighting the epidemic and safeguarding national and global public health security.
In a bid to assist WHO and the international community in these efforts, the Human Health Organization is actively engaging its international multi-stakeholder channels and committing itself to the cause in multiple ways: global conference to share lessons and experiences in fighting the epidemic, mobilization of materials, support and funds, and international collaboration, among other mechanisms.
Welcome to partner up with us in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
