About this event
World health day is celebrated annually on 7 April and draws attention to a specific health topic of concern to people all over the world.
As COVID-19 has highlighted, some people are able to live healthier lives and have better access to health services than others - entirely due to the conditions in which they are born, grow, live, work and age.
World health day is calling on leaders to ensure that everyone has living and working conditions that are conductive to good health.
