Today is World Health Day. This holiday is all about shining a light on global health.
The World Health Organization (WHO) first established this holiday 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 “Support Nurses and Midwives.” To celebrate, send a digital thank you card to a nurse today and thank them for their dedication to the well-being of others during this difficult time.
