The World Health Day (WHD) is celebrated today, 7 April 2023, also marking the the World Health Organization 75th anniversary.

In 1948, countries of the world came together and founded WHO to promote health, keep the world safe and serve the vulnerable – so everyone, everywhere can attain the highest level of health and well-being“, as it is stated on the WHO  website. This date is seen as an “opportunity to look back at public health successes that have improved quality of life during the last seven decades. It is also an opportunity to motivate action to tackle the health challenges of today  ̶  and tomorrow“, it is also stated.

In 2023, the motto is “Health For All” and there will be a focus on the theme “strengthening primary health care to build resilient systems”.
