World Health Day

The celebration of “World Health Day” focuses on rising life expectancy by bringing good health to people’s lives and encouraging healthy living patterns. The day is celebrated every year on 7th April, under the patronage of the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as other associated organizations, as a global day of health awareness. There is a particular theme for World Health Day each year. The World Obesity Foundation and other organizations supported the campaign to combat obesity worldwide on World Health Day, which is one of the key causes for illnesses. In order to control obesity and to keep fit and balanced, the program centered on the importance of physical exercise and diet control. In order to inform the public and policymakers about a particular aspect of the work of the World Health Organization, numerous local, national, and international activities are planned. A lot of media attention is given for this case. For those who want to schedule activities, a toolkit is offered but stresses that they should be appropriate for local cultural, social, and economic conditions. Examples of activities include health workers’ conferences, briefings for local officials, and presentations of information for children and young people. There could also be public marches and protests on the day, as well as free or easy access to medical tests. World Health Day was observed by WHO with the emphasis on offering universal health coverage (UHC) to all and anywhere. It reiterated its determination to provide each and every person in the world with health services. It was intended to provide all individuals access to quality health care around the world whenever and wherever they need them. World Health Day is not a public holiday, but a worldwide observance.

The United Nations was established by diplomats from a number of countries in 1945. The United Nations Economic and Social Council, which first met in 1946, was one of the organizations created. During this conference, calls were made for the creation of a United Nations organization dedicated to health issues. The First World Health Assembly was organized by the WHO in 1948. The Assembly voted to celebrate, with effect from 1950, the 7th April of each year as World Health Day. Since then, a large amount of important work has been carried out by the organization, including the global eradication of smallpox and the introduction of a wide variety of public health strategies. Now, 193 nations are members and the body is still working around the world to promote many areas of health. The World Health Day is held to commemorate the founding of WHO and is seen by the organization as an opportunity every year to draw worldwide attention to an issue of major significance to global health. After its foundation, numerous developing countries have tackled severe health problems, including chickenpox, polio, smallpox, TB, leprosy, etc. It has played a major role in making the globe a safe country. On this day, the WHO organizes international, regional, and local activities related to a specific theme. Different governments and non-governmental organizations with interests in public health concerns celebrate World Health Day, which also organizes events and highlights their support in media coverage, such as the Global Health Council. This has brought critical health problems, such as mental health, maternal and child care, and climate change, to light over the past 50 years. The event is characterized by events that continue beyond the day itself and acts as an opportunity to reflect on these critical aspects of public health around the world. On a global scale, WHO encourages numerous health authorities to make their own attempts to improve life without any diseases in the face of public health problems.
