World Health Day - 07 April.

# World Health Day - 07 April.

In 1948, there was a call for the creation of a 'World Health Day' to mark the founding of the World Health Organization. And since 1950, World Health Day has been celebrated annually on 7 April. Each year a theme is selected for World Health Day that highlights a priority area of concern for WHO.


The theme for World Health Day this year will be 'Hypertension', also known as high blood pressure, which increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure. 

The goal of the day is to raise awareness of hypertension and its risks and encourage healthy behaviours to prevent heart attacks, stokes etc.
