The month of April arrived and on the 07th a date is celebrated that today is very important for everyone.is celebrated International Health Day, but we know:
WHY IS IT CELEBRATED AND FOR WHAT?
Today more than ever is a day that has an important meaning in our society and mainly in the world, the situation generated by COVID-19 worldwide has put the health systems and all their health personnel to the test. Despite the difficulties encountered, the barriers encountered have been overcome, but this situation that took us by surprise is telling us that we must take action and be more prepared in situations like the current one.
We should not wait for April 7 to come to remember that we must reform and pay more attention to our health systems, and be aware of the world’s health problems.
WHY APRIL 07? YOU WILL BE WONDERING
World Health Day is celebrated on April 7, in commemoration of the anniversary of the creation of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Likewise, the original intention of celebrating this day was to remind people of how important health is.
HOW TO CELEBRATE WORLD HEALTH DAY?
The WHO each year focuses its campaign on a motto and this 2020 is “Support for Nursing and Midwifery Personnel”. The intention is to remember the critical role that nurses and midwifery personnel play in keeping the world healthy.
This year the role of nurses and other health workers has been highly visible by COVID-19. We have been able to see the importance of its role for the proper functioning of a medical center. Without the nurses, the response to care would not be so fast.
WHAT OBJECTIVES ARE LOOKING FOR WITH THE CELEBRATION OF WORLD HEALTH DAY?
One of the objectives of celebrating and more than celebrating remembering the importance of health is to emphasize the need for good systems of prevention and preservation of health.
The improvement of health systems is necessary, and we have verified this in recent months. Without the support and improvement of the public health system, serious risks such as natural disasters or epidemics like the one we are currently experiencing cannot be faced.
WHAT IS EXPECTED TO ACHIEVE WITH THE CELEBRATION OF WORLD HEALTH DAY?
As we mentioned in previous lines, each year a specific topic is highlighted on World Health Day, but this does not mean that other topics such as accessibility to health, diseases that still have no cure or the objectives are left aside. WHO has. In general, it is sought that all people can access the health services they need.
WHAT CAN WE DO FROM HOME ON WORLD HEALTH DAY?
Just by staying at home at this time we do a lot for our friends, families and community, so we avoid the spread of the virus and faster we can return to our daily lives with more energy and joy.
We leave you a phrase thatsaid Terri Guillemets that reflects how important health is for everyone.
