World Health Day (WHO)
In 1948, the World Health Organization held the First World Health Assembly. From 1950 onward, the Assembly decided to celebrate April 7th of each year as the World Health Day. It marks the founding of the WHO and is an opportunity to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health each year. The WHO organizes international, regional and local events on the Day related to a particular theme.
