World Health Day

World Health Day 2019 and 2020

From 1950 onward, 7 April has been World Health Day, a UN and World Health Organisation (WHO) observance meant to raise awareness of the need to improve global health. While the WHO also sponsors several disease-specific observance days, World Health Day is meant to be comprehensive in scope.

Year Date Day Holiday
2019 7 Apr Sun World Health Day
2020 7 Apr Tue World Health Day

Each year, the WHO will choose a specific health related theme for World Health Day. That theme will be focused on in media campaigns all year long, but the highlight of it all will be on 7 April.

There are also various local events organised by the WHO, government organisations, and humanitarian and health related private organisations on World Health Day. Many involved will be featured in media reports, may conduct fundraising campaigns, and may cooperate to improve world health by membership in such groups as the Global Health Council.
