World Pneumonia Day- November 12

World Pneumonia Day is a day to raise awareness of pneumonia and demand the fight against it.
Pneumonia is the most common cause of death in children under 5 years of age. 155 million children under the age of five are diagnosed with the disease each year, of which 1.6 die.
The day of the war against pneumonia was established in 2009 in order to mobilize the public to fight and prevent the disease.


Pneumonia is a fatal and difficult disease, but its treatment and prevention are effective and easy. There are effective vaccines against the two most common causes: B Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Orthomyxoviridae.
Antibiotics can cure the disease if you start taking it early enough.
The lives of a million children could have been saved each year if the treatment and prevention of pneumonia were being used in the poorest countries in the world.
Among the artists who have joined the fight against pneumonia are Gwyneth Paltrow and Hugh Laurie.
  Symptoms of pneumonia: fever and shortness of breath. If you have any of these symptoms, you should go to the doctor immediately. Untreated pneumonia can get complicated and cause more signs such as chest pain, chills, headaches, and muscles. Failure to treat the disease can be fatal.

World Blood Donor Day - June 14

Every year on June 14, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day.
The event, founded in 2004, is designed to raise awareness of the need for safe blood for its use and its blockages, and to thank blood donors for their life-saving contributions.
World Blood Donor Day is one of eight official public health campaigns marked by the World Health Organization (WHO), along with World Health Day, World Tuberculosis Day, World Vaccination Week, World Malaria Day, World Tobacco Day, World Jaundice Day and World AIDS Day.

A blood donation is the taking of blood from a person to use it or its products until it is given to another person who needs it, through a blood transfusion. Blood transfusions help save millions of people every year. They help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions to live longer and a higher quality of life, and support complex medical and surgical procedures. They also play a vital and life-saving role in maternity care. They help lower death rates due to severe bleeding during and after childbirth.
In the blood donation process, a donor of 450 ml of blood + 3 test tubes is taken from the donor to check the type of blood and that the blood is not infected with AIDS, jaundice or syphilis.
In the process of blood transfusion, the blood or its components are transferred to the person who needs an increase in blood volume.

Many countries do not have a sufficient supply of safe blood, and blood services face the challenge of obtaining safe blood to use a sufficient amount. Adequate supply can only be guaranteed through regular donations by blood donors who do not receive payment. The goal of the World Health Organization is for all countries to receive all their blood supply from donors by 2020. In 2014, 60 countries had their own blood supply based on 99-100% volunteer blood donations, and in 73 countries are still largely dependent on donations Of family members.
World Blood Donor Day is celebrated every year on June 14, the birth date of Karl Landsteiner in 1868. Karl Landsteiner was a biologist and physician who developed the modern method of blood classification in 1900 of the ABO, based on identifying the presence of collapse factors in the name. In 1937 he discovered the factor RH (a protein component that if present in the blood the blood type is a plus and if not then a minus). He was born in Austria as a Jew but converted to Christianity at the age of 22. In 1930 he received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for developing the ABO blood classification method and in 1937 he received a prize for discovering the RH factor.

Why should you donate blood?
Already in ancient times bloodshed was a common medical treatment and was considered beneficial to health.
Today it is known that blood donation encourages the bone marrow to produce new blood cells at an increased rate, to compensate for the deficiencies caused by the blood donation. During the renewal of deficiencies the body creates cells that aim to provide the body with protection against viruses and bacteria, so a regular donation maintains a more resilient immune system. It has been found that people who donate blood regularly live on average five years longer than those who do not donate, because their immune system is stronger.

A person who donates blood regularly to stay alive after massive blood loss is higher than a non-donor, because his body is already "trained" in blood loss situations and knows how to fill in the gaps faster.
It was found that people who donated blood at least once a year showed better results in blood sugar tests. It has also been found that blood donation reduces the risk of heart disease.

Hair loss is caused not only as a result of cancer but also from other diseases like alopecia areata, an inflammatory disease of the hair follicle that causes hair loss to the scalp.

The foreign wigs are also used by women in the Jewish ultra-Orthodox community, many of whom fulfill the obligation to cover their heads by wearing the wig.

For judges and lawyers in courts in many countries like England, USA and Australia curly white wig is a necessary part of the traditional outfit.

Wigs are also part of the appearance of drag queens who want to present a look of lush and stunning female hair.

March 10 is also Pack Your Lunch Day and Mario Day

Dress in Blue Day - The first Friday in March

Dress in Blue Day was initiated by Anita Mitchell, an American teacher who recovered from stage 4 colon cancer but lost a close friend and her father to the disease.
Mitchell wanted to raise awareness for early detection of life-saving colon cancer. In 2006 she worked with her classmates on an idea for a day of illness recognition. They came up with the idea that instead of the regular uniforms that should be brought to school all year round, on the first Friday of March they could come in blue clothes of their choice, provided they donated one dollar to colon cancer research.

Subsequently, every March became the month of awareness of colon cancer awareness.
The idea of ​​dressing in blue on the first Friday in March to promote disease awareness became national in 2009. Anita introduced the idea to the Colon Cancer Association and they enthusiastically promoted it throughout the United States. A blue star was chosen as a symbol for the memory of people who died of colon cancer.
Early detection of colon cancer significantly increases the chance of recovery.
Colon cancer has no visible symptoms in the first two to three years of development, so it is recommended that anyone over the age of 50, the age at which the risk of the disease increases, do tests to detect the disease, such as a stool test and a routine colonoscopy. People who have symptoms of colon cancer are advised to get tested even if they have not reached the age of 50.

The symptoms of colon cancer are:
A change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea, soft and mucous bowel movements, constipation, a change in the diameter of the bowel which lasts for more than a few days. A feeling of lack of vacancy. Rectal bleeding or blood mixed with feces, the blood can be red or walnut and even prone to black. Abdominal pain. Weakness / anemia due to iron deficiency. Weight loss. These symptoms can also indicate the presence of other diseases, but it is recommended to be tested anyway when they appear.
To prevent the disease one must maintain a healthy lifestyle: avoid smoking and obesity, exercise and eat healthy.
In 2011, Carmen Mark Valvo, an American fashion designer, partnered with the Colon Cancer Committee to promote Blue Dress Day.

How to mark Dress in Blue Day?

First of all, wear blue clothes that everyone usually has in the closet and tell people the cause, to encourage them to read and get to know the disease and go get tested. You can donate to the Association for the War on Cancer, you can donate hair to cancer patients and most importantly, promote awareness of the disease to prevent its tragic consequences.

World Rabies Day - September 28

World Rabies Day is an international campaign aimed at raising awareness of the impact of rabies on humans and animals, providing information and advice on how to prevent the disease, and how individuals and organizations can help eliminate the major global sources of disease outbreak.
The Initiator of Rabies Day is the World Alliance for the Control of Rabies, a non-profit organization headquartered in the United States and the United Kingdom.
World Rabies Day is held every year on September 28, the anniversary of the death of Louis Pasteur, the man who developed the first effective rabies vaccine.

Some facts about rabies:

Rabies is also called hydrophobia after one of its symptoms - extreme fear of water. Hydrophobia occurs in humans infected with rabies, not in animals.

Rabies is considered the most deadly disease in the world, as most people infected with it do not survive.

Rabies infects not only dogs and animals in the canine family, but also other mammals, including humans.

The cause of rabies is a virus that is most often transmitted by the bite of an infected animal. The virus passes through the saliva and can also pass through licking.

Rabies is a deadly viral disease that attacks the nervous system of mammals.

The rabies virus passes through the body through nerve fibers to the brain. As long as the virus does not reach the brain, the animal it is in is called a carrier.

The animals that may be infected with the rabies virus are mainly jackals, wolves, foxes, rats, raccoons and bats and any living creature with warm blood.

Infected animals can act as vectors that transmit the virus, and also infect humans that come in contact with them.

The time that elapses from the onset of the disease to its onset ranges from a few weeks to a year, and is affected by many factors such as: the size of the bite, the number of bites, proximity to the spine and proximity to the head.

The symptoms of rabies: Behavioral change is the first sign. For example, a friendly dog will become aggressive. As the disease progresses, the virus passes through the facial nerves and reaches the salivary glands. At this point the patient begins to become contagious through the saliva. The virus then descends to the swallowing muscles, then there is impaired swallowing ability, and increased salivation. Another symptom is photophobia, hypersensitivity to light and fear (while) or aversion to sunlight and well-lit places. The next stage is development throughout the body, to the point of paralysis of the respiratory muscles and death.

After the first signs appear, the chances of recovering from rabies are nil. If there is a suspicion that a person has contracted rabies, he should be vaccinated immediately to save him.

Only six people are known to have survived rabies after it broke out. Five of them were vaccinated against rabies before the disease broke out and yet the symptoms appeared in them. Only one girl survived rabies without any vaccine. In 2004, Jeanna Giese, a 16-year-old girl from Wisconsin, USA, was bitten on the finger by a rat. She did not seek treatment and after 37 days she developed symptoms of the disease. Her immune system began to develop antibodies on her own that would fight the virus.She survived the disease but her motor ability was severely impaired.After undergoing rehabilitative treatments she was able to walk and drive.

Every year between 40,000 and 70,000 people die from rabies worldwide. About 6 million people worldwide receive the vaccine each year for fear of being infected.

International Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) Awareness Day - April 13

Functional neurological disorder is a disorder that disconnects the communication between the brain and the body, even when the brain and body seem to function properly. The disorder is due to a problem with the functioning of the nervous system and is considered as a result of the inability of the brain to send and receive signals properly. The functional neurological disorder can mimic other disorders and diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's and epilepsy, and can be equally debilitating and stressful.


There are a large number of symptoms experienced by people suffering from a functional neurological disorder. It is important to note that the symptoms they experience are very real. However, the origin of the symptoms is complex because they can be related to physical injury, severe psychological trauma (Conversion Disorder) and dysfunction of idiopathic neurology (when there is no clear cause). The main symptoms of the disorder belong to motor or sensory function: limb weakness or paralysis, electrical attacks (also called dissociative or non-epileptic seizures) - these may appear as epileptic seizures, disconnection or fainting, movement disorders including tremors, dystonia (convulsions), myoclonus (Sudden and involuntary movements), visual symptoms including loss of vision or double vision, speech symptoms including dysphonia (whispered speech), blurred or stuttering speech, sensory disturbance including missensor syndrome (different sensation on one side of the body).

Many patients suffering from FND are diagnosed by doctors with diseases that have an organic cause and not of the mind. With FND, the symptoms are not due to psychological or organic causes, but the pain or lack of movement still exists and the causes are not revealed. This is because there is probably not enough research on the subject.

Currently, the best treatment programs available for the disorder are through physical therapy and painkillers.

When it comes to disorders and diseases, one of the most common misconceptions is that sufferers always have control over their symptoms through treatments and medications. In disorders such as Functional Neurologic Disorder (FND), this is not the case.

Many disorders and diseases do not have a cure, so in many cases of disorders that do not have enough research on their subject, it is difficult for doctors and patients to find ways to treat the symptoms and diagnose the problem.

Functional neurological disorder (FND) is just one of those disorders that leaves many confused and wanting answers.

History of International Day for the Functional Neurological Disorder

The International Disorder Awareness Day was created by Bridget Mildon, CEO and Founder of FND Hope International. hopes to help people with Functional Neurological Disorder understand what it is and learn how to find treatment. FND Hope is an organization designed to help people with the disorder and teach people What FND is and how it can help fund research into the disorder and find a potential cure for it.The organization created in 2013 the first International Awareness Week of the disorder.

FND Hope has branches across the US, UK and Australia and their main purpose is to help others connect around the world via the web and encourage people to support in the hope of finding a cure for FND. The organization has a team of 30-40 dedicated volunteers from around the world Social change and support from a group of colleagues online in thousands of people from over 100 countries.


How to mark International Day of Functional Neurological Disorder?

If you want to help achieve the purpose of this day, share it on your favorite social media sites and use the hashtag #LetsTalkFND to let everyone know what day it is. If you know someone who suffers from the disorder, or who suffer from it yourself, share your personal experiences, or donate to FNDHope to help investigate the disorder.

World Parkinson’s Disease Day- April 11

World Parkinson's Day is celebrated on April 11, in honor of the birthday of Dr. James Parkinson, the English physician who discovered and described the disease.

On this day, efforts are being made to increase public awareness of this terrible disease, to honor the hard and good work that world health organizations have done to eradicate the disease and to support Parkinson's patients and their families all over the world.


One popular way to support awareness of this disease is to participate in marathons in cities around the world. The number of participating countries is expanding every year, including Australia, Uruguay, Mexico, Bolivia, the United States and other countries.

Dr. Parkinson first described the disease in his 1817 essay “An Essay on the Shaking Palsy” He described a pattern of reduced muscle strength, involuntary tremor, disturbances in balance, and instability in walking.

One of the most prominent symbols of Parkinson's disease is the red tulip, which was set on the 9th global anniversary of Parkinson's disease at the Luxembourg Conference. The story of the red tulip is linked to a Dutch horticulturalist named J.W.S. Van der Wereld, who was living with Parkinson’s and developed a new red and white variant of the tulip. He named his newly cultivated flower the Dr James Parkinson tulip in honour of the medico who first documented the features of Parkinson’s disease in his 1817 publication An Essay on the Shaking Palsy.

This colorful flower received the Excellence Award, from the Royal Horticultural Association of London.

What is Parkinson's disease? Parkinson's is a disorder that causes degeneration of the central nervous system, and directly affects the nerves that handle motor functions throughout the body. The disease is caused by a lack of the neurotransmitter dopamine, due to the degeneration of the group of black matter cells (Substania Nigra) in the brain. As the disease progresses, the organs' slowness and stiffness increase, involuntary tremors appear, speech becomes weak, monotonous and stuttering and eventually more and more motor functions are impaired. Patients also suffer from memory problems that worsen over time, although the ability to think logically is not impaired. In 80-50% of cases the disease begins with a tremor in one of the palms.

There is pharmacological treatment for Parkinson's disease that delays the development of the disease if it was discovered at the beginning, and treatments of conventional medicine that help reduce the symptoms. All schools of medicine (alternative and conventional) recommend exercise and keeping the brain as "active" as possible in daily life to prevent the development of the disease.


Celebrities suffering from Parkinson's disease

Actor Michael J. Fox contracted Parkinson's in 1990. Fox is an avid follower of Parkinson's disease research and attempts to find a cure for it. To this end, Fox established the Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2000 to promote the finding of a cure for Parkinson's disease.

Professional cyclist and Olympic medalist Davis Phinney, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's at the young age of 40, founded the Davis Phinney Foundation in 2004 to support Parkinson's research, focusing on the quality of life of people with the disease.

Boxer Muhammad Ali showed signs of Parkinson's when he was 38, but was not diagnosed until the age of 42, and was called "the most famous Parkinson's patient in the world."

How to mark Parkinson's Day?

What can you do to help on this important day? As mentioned above there are many marathons and marches that take place in different countries to help raise funds for research into the disease. If you are in a place that has such a marathon, you can attend or set up a stall of refreshments, shirts or various items and donate the money to health organizations that are engaged in researching the disease. You can learn about the disease and share the information with as many people as possible, so that they know how important it is to detect the disease from the very beginning in order to delay its development.


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: 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?
If you follow the link of the World Health Organization, you will find more topics and ideas for improving world health on World Health Day.

April 7 is also No Housework Day

World Leprosy Day- The last Sunday of January

World Leprosy Day is observed annually on the last Sunday of January. The goal of the day is to raise awareness of the disease and of the right of its victims to be treated with kindness and proper medical care rather than to ostracize them, isolate them from the healthy community and disregard their basic human rights. When leprosy is not treated due to ignorance and shame, it damages and disables, slowly destroying each aspect of a person’s life. Were it not for stigma and misunderstandings about the disease, more and more infected people would seek treatment and all healthcare professionals would recognize its symptoms.
Leprosy day was initiated in 1953 by the French writer, philanthropist and social reformer Raoul Follereau (1903-1977), who became an ardent activist for the cause of the leprosy- infected after encountering and being appalled by the total segregation and deprivation of basic human rights suffered by these unfortunate men, women and children. In 1975, following years dedicated to philanthropic activities, Follereau submitted the text of the Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Leprosy Affected Persons to the United Nations.
Follereau chose the approximate date in January for Leprosy Day in honor of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. Gandhi, who was assassinated on January 30 1948, is renowned for his selfless efforts to assist and support the victims who were infected by leprosy.
Here is a link to more detailed information about Raoul Follereau and his significant contribution to the relief and cure of leprosy affected persons.


What is Leprosy?
Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease (named after Gerhard HenrikArmauer, the Norwegian physician who in 1873 first identified the bacterium that causes the disease) is a mildly contagious disease of the skin and nerves that, if left untreated progresses to inflict severe disability, paralysis, blindness, damage to the bones and eventual loss of limbs and other parts of the body.

 Gerhard Henrik Armauer Hansen

But it is nowadays extinct, isn't it?
No, it is not. In 2015, above 210,000 new cases were diagnosed, mainly in countries in which poor hygiene of the population is widespread such as in India, Brazil, Indonesia, Tanzania, Madagascar, Mozambique and other so-called  "Third World" countries. The number of persons inflicted with leprosy throughout the world today is estimated at tens of millions.


Can leprosy be cured?
Yes, leprosy is nowadays a curable disease, but early detection is vital since severe damage caused by the disease such as blindness, loss of sensation and loss of limbs cannot generally be undone. Since 1982, a six to twelve month daily combination of antibiotics has been used successfully as a cure for leprosy.
Leper colonies and houses past and present
According to an article on the subject inWikipedia, leper colonies and houses became widespread in the Middle Ages, particularly in Europe and India. Nowadays, as stated in an article about Leprosy Day published in 2014 by TheLeprosy Mission England and Wales, (an international organization that diagnoses, treats and offers specialist care, including reconstructive surgery, to leprosy patients), there are still leprosy colonies in the world today, 850 of which are in India.

Organizations for treatment of leprosy-affected persons
Infolep, an international online platform and knowledge center on leprosy and related subjects, has published on the Web an alphabetical list of190 international and national organizations for research, treatment and rehabilitation of leprosy-affected persons. Among them are AIFO (Amici di Raoul Follereau) in Italy, Lepra (an international charity working to transform the lives of people affected by leprosy) in the UK, ALM(American Leprosy Missions) in the USA,  Alert-India (Association for Leprosy Education, Rehabilitation and Treatment-India) and many others in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.


Leprosy in ancient times
The earliest known account of a disease that is believed to be leprosy appears in an Egyptian Papyrus written around 1550 B.C. In Europe, leprosy was first reported in the records of ancient Greece around 323 BC, when Alexander the Great returned with his army from India. Later on, leprosy was recorded in Rome in 62 B.C. at the time that Pompeii's troops returned from Asia Minor. In the Bible, the term “leprosy” and derivatives of the term such as lepers and leprous occurs 55 times in the Old Testament and 13 times in the New Testament. However, researchers doubt whether the term is actually about the disease as it is known today or some other harsh skin disorders. Records indicate that the infected were banished and isolated in order to prevent mass infection.
Some facts about leprosy

According to the National Hansen's Disease Program(NHDP) and other sources:

·         The nine-bandedarmadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus) that is widespread in Florida and much of the Southeastern USA as well as Central and South America can carry the bacteria that cause leprosy and infect humans.

·         Only 5% of the human population is vulnerable to the bacteria that cause leprosy.

·         A combination of standard drugs is very effective in curing leprosy.

·         Just a few doses of medications suffice to make the patient noninfectious and eliminate the need to isolate him or her from family and friends.

·         The general misconception, even among care providers, that leprosy has been eradicated often causes a delay in the correct diagnosis of the disease.

·         Early diagnosis prevents nerves from being affected and turns the disease into a minor skin malady.

·         In 2015, 178 new cases of leprosy were reported in the USA.

·         8.9% of all the new, detected cases of leprosy in 2015 were children.

·         6.7% of all new leprosy patients in 2015 had Grade 2 disabilities (visible disabilities, damage to hands and feet and severe eyesight impairment), higher than previous years.

·         New patients with Grade 2 disabilities indicate late detection of leprosy and a lack of awareness of the early signs of leprosy.

·         Proactive, early detection and treatment of leprosy must be an international priority, to prevent leprosy from being transmitted to children and disabilities to be developed.

Things you can do on Leprosy Day

·         Search the Web for Leprosy and read about it in articles published on the Web by organizations such as AIFO, Alert-India, ALM, Lepra or any other site that you may prefer.

·         Discuss the subject with your friends and try to raise their awareness.

·         Consider volunteering by contacting an organization such as one of those that are listed in the Infolepwebsite.

·         Donateany sum that you wish to give.

When will Leprosy Day take place in the coming years?
