World Health Day 2024: My health, my right

World Health Day, celebrated on 7 April annually, commemorates the establishment of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1948 and serves as a platform to raise awareness about global health challenges.

It is a worldwide initiative that engages leaders and individuals across all nations to address a singular health concern with universal significance. The theme for 2024 is “My health, my right,” emphasizing the fundamental entitlement of every individual to access quality healthcare, education, and information, along with essentials like clean water, air, nutrition, housing, fair labour conditions, and an environment free from prejudice. By spotlighting emerging health issues, World Health Day catalyzes collaborative efforts aimed at safeguarding public health and promoting overall well-being.
