We’ve all heard of a phrase before which says that Health is our absolute wealth. But do we care about our health? Do we really prioritize our health concerns? In today’s fast pacing world health is our least important priority. But whenever we encounter with any disease, we realize how important it is to require care for our health.
Every year in 7thof April WHO (World Health Organization) conducts World Health Day to celebrate their establishment and to remind us of the significance of our health.
Each year on this day a theme is to choose to highlight an important part to focus on. The theme of this year’s World Health Day is “Our planet, Our health” It’s to make sure that the problems we face because of the polluted environment shouldn’t be neglected. WHO reports that every year approximately 1 million people die due to environmental pollutions. Also, many people suffer from the various disease that affects their health. With this theme WHO wants us to know that our environment has a direct effect on our health. It is very important for us to not ignore any opportunity to save our planet in order for our well-being.
World Health Day isn’t about only healthy eating and healthy living, the main focus is health awareness. Many health organizations from different countries along with many NGOs celebrate this day to spread awareness among people. The primary goal of WHO on this day is to educate people about the significance of good health. Because a good health is a heaven for our soul and an ill health is a prison. Hence, the 2022 world health day is about the health of our planet which is connected to the health of all living creatures. And we need to look forward to the global crisis which tends to harm our planet.
All the above things which we have mentioned are to give you an idea of World Health Day. Whatever we do to our planet, it will impact our health. So, in order to live a healthy lifestyle, we must take care of our planet. No matter how much we have knowledge for this day, if we cannot start saving our planet we cannot save ourselves.
