World Health Day – My health, my right

April 6, 2025

April 7th is World Health Day. A global health awareness day under the auspices of the World Health Organization (WHO). The day provides an opportunity to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health each year.

Despite at least 140 countries enshrining health as a human right in their constitutions, the implementation of laws ensuring access to health services remains lacking. Sadly, as of 2021, over half of the world’s population—approximately 4.5 billion people—were not fully covered by essential health services.

This year’s theme was chosen to champion the right of everyone, everywhere to have access to quality health services, education, and information, as well as safe drinking water, clean air, good nutrition, quality housing, decent working and environmental conditions, and freedom from discrimination.
