Why celebrate World Health Day 2020?
This year, the World Health Day is set aside for the cause of nurses and midwives. Fact is that, with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Nurses and other health workers are at the forefronts, providing respectful treatment and care, leading community dialogue to address fears and questions and are also collecting data for clinical studies, in some cases.
Without the help of nurses, there would be no response. On this World Health Day, WHO has sought to highlight the current status of nursing around the world. The organisation, along with its partners, will be making a series of recommendations to strengthen the nursing and midwifery workforces.
This day is a global health awareness day and to ensure that ‘Everyone everywhere gets the healthcare they need’, we must all take a part in this year’s world health day to show our support and respect to all the health professionals out in the World.
The World Health Day every year focuses to achieve national and global targets such as maternal & child health, mental wellness, emergency preparedness & response, patient safety, etc.
This day of every year seeks attention to all such global health concerns that mankind must work on to curb its repercussions. The World Health Day is also one of the 8 official global health campaigns by WHO
