World Health Day 2024

World Health Day 2024:

World Health Day 2024 is celebrated every year on April 7.

  • World Health Day is aimed at raising awareness about global health issues and encourage people to live healthier.
  • The origin of World Health Day goes back to 1948 when First Health Assembly was held by the organisation, where it was decided to commemorate April 7 as World Health Day and it came into effect in 1950.
  • Over the years, the celebrations have aimed to create awareness around a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.
  • The theme of 2024 World Health Day is ‘My health, my right’.
  • This theme was chosen to champion the right of everyone, everywhere to have access to quality health services, education and information, as well as safe drinking water, clean air, good nutrition, quality housing, decent working and environmental conditions and freedom from discrimination.
