What is the Theme of World Health Day 2020?

 

The theme for world health day 2020 is to support nurses and midwives. This theme recognizes the vital role of nurses and other health workers. World health day every year also promotes healthy living. At the time of Coronavirus, we are urging each one of you to support these heroes who are fighting the virus for us. Let us just add a supporting hand to the theme of the day!.

 

Quoting the message by WHO, “This World Health Day, we honor the contribution of nurses and midwives, recognizing their vital role in keeping the world healthy. Nurses and other health workers are at the frontlines of COVID-19 response, putting their own health at risk to protect the broader community.

 

Comprising more than two-thirds of the health workforce in the WHO Western Pacific Region, nurses are critical in responding to health needs in all settings and across the lifespan. In the 2020 International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, the World Health Day is an opportunity to highlight the work of nursing and midwifery around the world, while celebrating this workforce as one of the most valuable resources of every country.”

What is the history behind the world health day?

 

April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.

 

Over the past 50 years, this has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, maternal and child care, and climate change. The celebration is marked by activities that extend beyond the day itself and serves as an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on these important aspects of global health.

 

It is not important that you travel the extra mile to make sure people know that you care. The medical professional around the world is the highest risk of getting the virus and are still on duty. It is important to stay at home and take care of ourselves as well as that of the family members. Stay home and stay safe! The world is fighting together!
