World Health Day

"Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship." - Gautam Buddha

Health is a relationship between you and your body, to keep that relationship healthy you must live in a balanced state.

According to WHO, health is central to human happiness and well-being. It also makes an important contribution to economic progress, as healthy populations live longer, are more productive, and save more.

Marking the importance of Health, World Health Day is celebrated on April 7 every year. It is an initiative taken by the World Health Organization to raise awareness about overall health and well-being of people across the world.

The theme for World Health Day 2020 is to support nurses and midwives. WHO chose the year 2020 as the "Year of the Nurse and Midwife" because of the contribution which nurses and midwives are making in making the world a healthier place.

2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, and WHO wants to highlight the significant roles which these two play in making the world a better place.
