World Health Day - April 7
World Health Day is celebrated every year by the World Health Organization. This day was first announced in 1950 and since then every year it is dedicated to an issue that is important to draw attention to. World Health Day is celebrated with a gathering of regional, local and international events related to the chosen theme.
World Health Day is a good day to decide on a healthier lifestyle change like to start doing sports, eat less sweets or quit smoking.
The World Health Organization is a United Nations agency that focuses on the public health of the world as a whole. The organization has a constitution signed by the countries involved.
Everyone should be concerned about their own health and that of their community, and if you have come to this page, then this is a good time to turn your attention to this year's topic. By checking out their website: https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-health-day. This year, on April 7, 2021 the issue is "Building a fairer, healthier world".
The World Health Organization has been involved in mobilizing many health efforts all over the world. The organization works to disseminate information about the vitality of medicines for public health, awareness of infectious diseases and prevention and more. The movement to eradicate smallpox began in 1958, at the initiative of Victor Zhdanov, the then Deputy Minister of Health of the Soviet Union. In 1979, the World Health Organization declared that smallpox had disappeared from the world, making it the first disease in history to be eradicated by the dedicated efforts of humans.
Anyone can take a hand in improving the overall health of the world, and one can start by worrying about the health of yourself, your family and your community. You can also donate blood on this day. The blood bank should always have healthy doses of blood. You can also take as a task an examination of your environment - for example, are there standing water sources that may be fertile ground for insects such as mosquitoes that spread disease by bites?
