World Health Day

Today is World Health Day. This holiday is all about shining a light on global health.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is celebrating it's 75th Anniversary this year. The WHO first established World Health Day in 1950 as a way to bring awareness to important health issues. Each year, the WHO selects a different health issue to highlight and organizes events worldwide related to that year’s specific issue. World Health Day has brought significant attention to important issues like mental health, climate change, and infectious diseases.

The theme for this year’s World Health Day is "High-level dialogue Health for All: strengthening primary health care to build resilient systems". To mark the occasion, make a planet-friendly choice, and send a digital greeting card to someone special today.
