World Health Day

April 7 is World Health Day sponsored by the World Health Organization. The 2019 theme is Universal Health Care.

Universal health coverage is WHO’s number one goal. Key to achieving it is ensuring that everyone can obtain the care they need, when they need it, right in the heart of the community.

Progress is being made in countries in all regions of the world.
But millions of people still have no access at all to health care. Millions more are forced to choose between health care and other daily expenses such as food, clothing and even a home.  


This is why WHO is focusing on universal health coverage for this year’s World Health Day, on 7 April.
