World health day is celebrated every year on 7th April to raise awareness for ongoing health issues. Also, WHO was founded on this date in 1948. The first assembly decided to celebrate World Health’s day on 7th April with effect from 1950. Every year WHO chooses a theme related to health to highlight the priority area. The theme is selected by the current WHO Director-General, obviously after hearing suggestions of the members, governments and staff.
Well when we are talking about health it is not specifically physical health, here we are talking about physical health, mental health, social health, intellectual health. If you are healthy, your life will be much happier.
On this 2022 World Health’s Day, WHO comes with the theme “ Our Planet, Our Health. A very strong and inspiring theme isn’t it? In the middle of a pandemic, a polluted planet, rising temperatures, increasing diseases like cancer, asthma, heart disease, and whatnot. It is quite important to focus on our Mother Earth. On World Health Day 2022, WHO focuses global attention on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy and safe. Creating a movement to motivate societies to focus on well-being.
As there is a saying “There is no Planet B, there is only one Earth” well we all need to understand this. It’s not just a saying anymore, it is the harsh reality of today’s world. With every year our environment is changing and it is high time to put people and planet health in the center of actions, as we are already late.
