Canada, the second largest country in the world occupies most of the northern part of NorthAmerica, covering the vast land area from the United States in south to the Arctic Circle in thenorth. It is a country of enormous distances and rich natural resources. World HealthOrganization was established on 7th April, 1948 with a goal of ensuring better and healthierfuture for people all over the world. Canada works closely with WHO to reduce global diseasessuch as polio, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and to improve the health and rights ofwomen and children, including nutrition.Canada is a strong supporter of WHO initiatives such as: Global Polio Eradication Initiative,Stop TB Partnership, Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health. Canada alsoworks with WHO to support national health programs such as those in Haiti and Afghanistan andwith WHO’s regional offices such as the Pan American Health Organization. Canadiangovernment is working for refugees all over the world. Canada holds the 5th position of the top10 government donor list of UNHCR. We funded (USD) $79,733,553 for the refugees in2017.Most of the refugee camps in the developing and least developed country have the heath andsanitation problem. Generally in those camps, the refugees live in densely populated camps andshacks made from bamboo and plastic sheets, with poor access to clean water, sanitation andhealth services. As a result the diseases like diphtheria, cholera, dysentery are spreading out in allover the camps. The refugees of those camps are badly needed the proper healthcare andsanitation system because it’s their basic human rights. Most recently in the Rohingya camp atukhiya, Bangladesh is at risk of deadly diphtheria. The World Health Organization (WHO)describes diphtheria as a widespread, severe infectious disease with epidemic potential and amortality rate of up to 10 percent. The camps are facing shortage of medicine. Now-a-days heathand sanitation problem is becoming a serious issue for the camps.For the solution of this serious issue several steps should be taken. The delegate of Canadasuggests UNHCR to provide more medical aid to the refugee camp and build a water cleaningsystem in those camps. Camps should be in the form of semi-permanent or permanent. Propersanitary should be built in the camps. We also believe that if all the developed countries areworking together for the funding regarding the issue of health and sanitation in the refugee campthis problem can be solved.References:1. http://www.who.int/en/2. http://www.unhcr.org/3. http://www.nationsonline.org/oneworld/canada.htm4. http://international.gc.ca/world-monde/international_relations-relations_internationales/multilateral-multilateraux/who-fao.aspx?lang=eng5. https://www.loc.gov/law/help/refugee-law/canada.php6. http://www.unhcr.org/donors.html7. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-myanmar-rohingya-bangladesh-disease/rohingya-at-risk-of-deadly-diphtheria-face-shortage-of-medics-antitoxins-idUSKBN1EM19K
