 World Health Day 2019

          "Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere"



We celebrate World Health Day on April 7 each year. The constitution of WHO came into force on 7th April, 1948, which is celebrated every year as "World Health Day". The celebration has aimed to create

awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.

Universal health coverage is WHO's number one goal. But millions of people still have no access at all to health care. This is why WHO is focusing on universal health coverage for this year's World Health Day.

On the other end some population are there who really forgot "self-care" after being receiving all the facilities for health. We should not forget that our health is in our own hand only. We should always shoulder the Individual as well as Community responsibility of Health.

Eat healthy, think healthy and remain active all throughout the day, wish you all a happy and healthy life on the occasion of World Health Day 2019.
