History of World Health Day and How to Celebrate/ Observe It

World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on April 7th. The day is sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and is used to highlight important health issues and promote healthy living. This year’s theme is Universal Health Coverage: Everyone, Everywhere and focuses on the need for affordable, quality healthcare for all.

In many parts of the world, people do not have access to essential health services and are forced to pay out-of-pocket for care. This can lead to financial hardship and even death. Universal Health Coverage is a way to ensure that everyone has access to the health services they need, when they need them, without facing financial hardship.

There are many benefits to Universal Health Coverage, including improved health outcomes, greater equity, and economic growth. WHO is working with countries around the world to help them achieve Universal Health Coverage by 2030.

On World Health Day, let’s pledge to do our part to make Universal Health Coverage a reality.
