International forums shouldn’t remain silent for the decisions and cursory proceedings and actions of the American statesmen.The inability of bank transfers due to outrageous sanctions for the provision of raw materials for producing locally, medical devices is required.

According to Webda,In a letter to Dr Tedros, the General secretary of the World Health Organization, in reference to the unfair sanctions and cursory decisions and measures taken by the American statesmen, the World Health Organization, in particular, called upon the international community to not remain silent and do not let delinquent government affect people's health, in a country where the issue of health is the main focus of national government programmes.
The Minister of Health, Dr. Saeid Namaki also invited Dr Tedros, the General secretory of the World Health Organization, to participate in the 66th Summit of the Eastern Mediterranean region countries that will be held in Tehran on October 14th to October 17th this year.

According to Webda, The words of the Health Minister's letter to the General Secretary of the World Health Organization is as follows:

Sir Dr. Tedros

The General secretary of the World Health Organization

The affectionate message of your worship which was read by the General secretary at the National Committee of the Control and Prevention of non epidemic Diseases, is a gratitude to your worship.

As you have stated, in the past few years, despite strict sanctions, the Islamic Republic of Iran has achieved a brilliant career in developing the infrastructure of health system, vaccination coverage, surveillance, control and eradication of epidemic diseases, as well as prevention of non epidemic diseases in the regional and international arena.

The implementation of the health system development plan in Mr. president Rohani’s government, also in the completion of this valuable service and an increase of about 3 percent of the health share of the country's GDP, represents a special view of this government which is tangible and measurable achievements owned by the organization's experts.
today, with employing all the experiences and thoughts of experts in the country, we have taken a new step in the field of health .

priority is given to prevention over treatment and outpatient treatment over inpatient treatment , root causes , elimination and control of epidemic diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis , brucellosis ,Leishmaniasis, hepatitis C and increase of Pneumvaccine and rotavirus vaccine by relying on their internal production to the country’s vaccination protocol , along with dealing with non epidemic diseases such as hypertension , diabetes , heart disease , mental health , disaster management and road accidents are in the second stage of our plan is to change the health system.

The establishment of electronic health record as a line of family medicine and referral system enabled us to take other transcendental steps, such as addressing the health economy and preventing the induction request and wasting resources.

Today, we are trying to go through the family-driven community and with the slogan "Every Home A Health Base" in 20 million Iranian families, to have at least one health ambassador who will be familiar with primary health, treatment and rehabilitation services.

Unfortunately, the oppressive and irrational sanctions of the American government have made many difficulties in the country's health system despite their claim to freedom of action in providing medicine and food, which in the near future will have adverse effects on the people of our country.


The provision of raw medical materials for domestic production , medical equipment needed and imported medicines for certain and serious patients due to the impossibility of banking transfers caused by the american government's oppressive sanctions has created serious problems that by forcing non-official ways and the possibility of profiteering, we are concerned about entering from non-credible sources and damage to patients, and ultimately to the health system that this irrational movement could be regarded as a crime against humanity.

The rash and hasty actions and decisions of the members of the United States’s government has gone that far which lately They put Dr. Zarif ,The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Islamic republic of Iran, on the sanctions list.
As you know, This unprecedented step in the international arena is applied by an outlawed state against the individual.His peaceful actions have achieved international agreement which is the “Joint Comprehensive plan of actions”.
An agreement which The Islamic Republic of Iran has always been committed to it, according to the international competent bodies.
Therefore, I ask that respectable position as General secretary who stands in the world arena for the health rights of the citizens of the world, It is important to intervene in these matters so that a government with rule evasion can’t affect people’s health in a country where health is the pivot of national government programs .

I hope that I will host your worship in Tehran on the 66th summit of the eastern mediterranean region countries, which will be held in Tehran on october 14-17th.
