Celebrating World Health Day 2019

World Health Day is fast approaching. This event is meant to raise awareness and for the improvement of global health. Below are the things you need to know for this occasion.

What is World Health Day?

World Health Day is celebrated annually every 7th day of April. It’s objective is to raise awareness and address the diseases that may impact the population. Every year, the World Health Organization (WHO) chooses a specific health-related theme that will focus on in-media campaigns all year long.

For 2019, the theme for World Health Day is Universal Health Coverage: Everyone, Everywhere.

Universal Health means that people have access to comprehensive quality health care, without any kind of discrimination, whenever, wherever. It’s not just guaranteeing that everyone is covered, it’s also ensuring them that they have access to health care anytime they need them.

It is possible to handle and tackle every task when the person has good health to address all the activities; one’s well-being is paramount to achieve all the activities accurately without any problem.

Having knowledge to certain diseases a person has is one, but having access to a remedy is another. Everyone has a part to play – it’s time to do yours! Spark the conversation and contribute to the advocacy that may help the world achieve universal health.
