Every year, 7 April is celebrated as World Health Day. On this day, the world appreciates the work of doctors, nurses and midwives and reminds the world about the role they play in keeping the world healthy.
From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organisation.
Over the past 50 years this has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, maternal and child care, and climate change. The celebration is marked by activities which extend beyond the day itself and serves as an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on these important aspects of global health.
On this year’s World Health Day, you can do your part by spreading awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Happiness is the highest form of health
