Sincere congratulations go to nurses on World Health Day on April 7. Doctors, midwives, resuscitators, and teams working in the emergency medical services are included. The holiday was established on the initiative of the World Health Organization. It is a great opportunity to express appreciation and gratitude to people who invariably help those who are in trouble and faced with serious illness and injuries. Health and physical well-being are important to everyone.
At the end of 1945, plenipotentiaries of Latin American and the Eastern regions took initiative to create an independent World Health Organization. Six months later, the institution had its own charter and began working closely with the international community on pressing problems. The day of the organization’s actual foundation became a holiday celebrated since 1950.
This holiday draws attention to issues of accessibility to high-quality, timely medical care for all categories of citizens in all countries. Special priority should be given to citizens who do not have the financial mean to pay for expensive procedures and special treatment in private clinics. The primary aim of the organization is to provide opportunities for medical care through free clinics to the poor.
- Seminars and other activities are held at educational institutions (schools, colleges, and universities). Discussion forums are organized.
- Sports events are also organized. Charitable collect donations, with funds going to the treatment of serious diseases.
- It is also celebrated in popular fast-food restaurants: there are changes in the menu, with the dish of day made exclusively from healthy ingredients in a healthy way: boiled or steamed.
Attention is paid to people working with mental health issues, which is a great problem due to the daily stress level of modern life. Appreciate your doctors’ work. It is extremely important in a dangerous world.
