World Health Day- 7 April

Health is a birth right, but many children are born without it.  Since 1950, World Health Day has been celebrated on 7 of April annually following an agreement by countries of the United Nations. Each year a different theme is chosen to highlight a key area of concern for the United Nations body dedicated to health, the World Health Organization (WHO).
