World Health Day History
World Health Day seeks to raise awareness about a major global health concern selected by the World Health Organization. This day aims to increase awareness about the selected health concern and hopes to encourage countries to focus their resources on addressing it.
The World Health Organization (WHO) was founded on April 7, 1948 to better address the needs of global health issues. Every year, the WHO Assembly meets in Geneva, Switzerland to choose a major global health concern and promote it through World Health Day in the hopes of increasing awareness and preventing more cases. World Health Day is observed annually on April 7th.
