World Health Day

7th April 2021 - 7th April 2021
The World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7th April. Each year the World Health Organisation highlight a health topic of concern to people all over the world.

The celebration is marked by activities which extend beyond the day itself and offers an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on important aspects of global health. This year the theme is ‘building a fairer, healthier world’. The World Health Organisation are inviting everyone to join a new campaign to build a fairer, healthier world. There are different ways you can get involved in World Health Day. For example, you could:

  • Send a letter to leaders: Sending letters to politicians could be a good place to start. Asking them how they are helping build a fair and healthier world.
  • Start a petition: If you’re truly passionate about helping build a fairer and healthier world, why not start a petition to support positive change? You could use one of the many online services to raise awareness, spread the word, and gather signatures.
