World Health Day 2021 : Motto Theme and Significance
The World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organisation, as well as other related organisations. And it founded on the principle the principle that all people should be able to realise their right to the highest possible level of health. Slogan “Health for all” is for more than seven decades as a guiding vision.
This global campaign was started by the World Health Organisation in the year 1950. This international body held the first World Health Assembly in 1948, which decided to observe April 7th as the World Health Day with effect from 1950.
The theme for World Health Day 2020 was to support nurses and midwives. WHO chose the year 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse and Midwife” to honour their contribution in making the world a healthier place.
WHO selects a different theme every year highlighting a particular priority area of public health. The 2021 world health day theme was “The greatest wealth is health.” -Virgil.
