CGTN: Samarkand summit: What China has proposed to boost SCO unity, cooperation

BEIJING, Sept. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In his first trip overseas since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Chinese President Xi Jinping went to Central Asia to attend the annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), held this year in the Uzbek city of Samarkand.

Calling it “China’s most important event of head-of-state diplomacy on the eve of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China,” a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said that it shows the great importance China attaches to the SCO.

At the 22nd meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the SCO on Friday, President Xi noted that the SCO has been an important constructive force in international and regional affairs.

He called on the group to uphold the Shanghai Spirit, strengthen unity and cooperation, and promote the building of an even closer SCO community with a shared future.

The Shanghai Spirit carried forward

The Samarkand SCO summit takes place at a time when the world is witnessing the combined impact of a pandemic unseen in a century, a de-globalization trend and other complex factors, with the global economic governance system facing challenges.

The Shanghai Spirit, named after the Chinese city in which the group was founded and as its undergirding values and guidelines, features mutual trust, mutual benefit, equality, consultation, respect for cultural diversity, and pursuit of common development.

On Friday, Xi said what can be drawn upon from the group’s rich practices includes political trust, mutually beneficial cooperation, equality, openness and inclusiveness, and equity and justice, which fully embodies the Shanghai Spirit.

It has been shown that the Shanghai Spirit is the source of strength for the development of the SCO, and also the fundamental guide the SCO member states must continue to follow in the years to come, he said.

“We owe the SCO’s remarkable success to the Shanghai Spirit. And we will continue to follow its guidance as we forge ahead,” he pledged.

Beyond security

At a time when geopolitical conflict and nontraditional security threats such as extremism and terrorism are on the rise, the SCO plays an important role in safeguarding regional security and joint prosperity. Yet its role goes beyond security.

During his speech, Xi called for the SCO members to strengthen practical cooperation among themselves. He said that China is ready to work with all other stakeholders to pursue the Global Development Initiative proposed by China and jointly promote the Belt and Road Initiative.

At the summit, statements on safeguarding international energy and food security were also adopted. Xi pledged that China will provide developing countries in need with emergency humanitarian assistance of grain and other supplies worth 1.5 billion yuan.

The Chinese president also urged the group to fully implement the cooperation documents in such areas as trade and investment, infrastructure, supply chains, scientific and technological innovation, and artificial intelligence.

Warning against an “obsession with forming a small circle,” Xi reiterated the importance of upholding true multilateralism to improve global governance and ensure that the international order is more just and equitable.

Vision for the future

Since its founding in 2001, the SCO has had an extraordinary journey. To date, the organization has eight full members, four observer countries and multiple dialogue partners.

In terms of geographic scope and population, the SCO is the world’s largest regional organization, covering approximately 60 percent of the land area of Eurasia and 41 percent of the world’s population. Its members accounted for 24 percent of global GDP in 2021, according to the World Bank.

And the SCO is still growing. At Friday’s summit, a memorandum of obligations on Iran’s full SCO membership was signed; the procedure for Belarus’ accession was started; MOUs granting Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Qatar the status of SCO dialogue partners were signed; agreements were reached on admitting Bahrain, the Maldives, the UAE, Kuwait and Myanmar as new dialogue partners.

Noting an increasing number of countries have applied to join the SCO family, the Chinese president said it fully demonstrates the power of the SCO’s vision and the widely shared confidence in its future.

In conclusion of his speech, Xi called on all countries to act in the Shanghai Spirit, work for the steady development of the SCO, and jointly build the region into a peaceful, stable, prosperous and beautiful home.

GLOBAL STANDARD OF CARE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED DUE TO MENTAL HEALTH OF HEALTHCARE WORKERS

Almost half of healthcare practitioners in global survey by WISH agree that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their mental health has affected their ability to provide a high standard of care

DOHA, Qatar, Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Incredibly high workloads and an increased level of workplace abuse since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic have taken a toll on the mental health of healthcare professionals, bringing down the standard of care delivery globally, an international study has shown.

59 percent of the healthcare professionals surveyed from the UK, US, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, India and Brazil, agreed that their mental health has suffered due to working throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. Nearly half (48%) recognized that this has adversely impacted their ability to provide a high standard of patient care, with 56 percent saying they were inclined to leave their jobs since the global health crisis began.

The survey was conducted by YouGov on behalf of the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), the global health initiative of Qatar Foundation. The research examined the impacts of the ongoing pandemic on the lives of health and care workers to understand their experiences and feelings about their career and workplace, as well as explore how they see the future of healthcare as those serving on the frontline of care delivery.

Highlighting a major risk factor to their mental health, almost half of the healthcare professionals revealed that they had witnessed or experienced more physical and verbal abuse since the start of the pandemic. Chief Nursing Officers stood out here, with over three quarters (78%) agreeing they had either seen increased abuse or been at the receiving end of it.

Identifying the biggest changes to their work since the COVID-19 outbreak, more than half of all practitioners noted a  higher workload, with a third specifying colleagues under more stress as some of the most prominent developments.

“While health and care workers routinely experience physical and emotional stress from working in high pressure environments, delivering care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these experiences, leading to an alarming impact on the mental health of caregivers on a global scale. It is imperative that governments, health systems and industry leaders listen to those that have been on the front line and learn from their experiences, to improve our collective response to the global mental health crisis that continues to compromise the quality of patient care across communities,” said Sultana Afdhal, CEO of WISH.

“As a champion of mental health, we believe this is a crucial area for global collaboration, and a tremendous opportunity for innovators, to revisit existing mechanisms, devise strategies and rebuild systems that help lift the burden from health and care workers and enable them to enhance care delivery,” Afdhal added.

WISH is a global platform which gathers healthcare experts, policymakers and innovators to unite in the goal of building a healthier world. The biennial WISH Summit aims to showcase WISH’s evidence-based research and discuss how to translate these findings into practical, policy-driven solutions that help transform global healthcare delivery.

The sixth edition of the summit is set to take place on October 4-6 in Doha, Qatar and virtually, under the banner of “Healing the Future.” The summit will thoroughly explore the legacy of COVID-19 from various perspectives, including how to build more resilient and sustainable healthcare systems, improve our response to the mental health crisis, and harness the rapid progress in pharmaceutical innovation that has taken place during the pandemic.
