World Health Day

Measurement: 4M4c, 5M5


Every year on World Health Day, the World Health Organisation leads an international campaign which encourages conversation and planning for the health of every person in the world! Depending on which country you live in, it can be easy and affordable to access medicine and medical care like in the UK, or expensive and difficult, like some states in the USA. 

The slogan for this year's World Health Day is, "Support Nurses and Midwives". Today we celebrate the work of nurses and midwives and remind everyone of the critical role they play in keeping the world healthy.
