Each year, on April 7, the World Health Organization (WHO) hosts World Health Day, which spotlights both physical and mental health. This year’s event is meant to recognize nurses and other essential workers, who all work tirelessly, around-the-clock in revolutionizing the healthcare industry.
WHO was founded in 1945 and, as one of its first campaigns, launched the holiday in 1948, but it was first observed in 1950. The day is meant to bring to light the importance of physical and mental wellbeing, on a worldwide scale.
Over the course of the last 70 years, the holiday has put emphasis on climate change, childcare, numerous health-related issues, and mental health as well. It serves as a great opportunity to focus attention on matters which are affecting the global society.
This year’s theme is ‘Building a Fairer, Healthier World for Everyone’, in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, which has crippled industries, forced many into poverty and continues to undercut overall health, on a global front.
