A healthy outside starts from the inside

Books you need to read this April (The 7th of April – The World Health Day)


World Health Day is celebrated every year on the 7th of April, the founding day of the World Health Organization. The World Health Organization was founded in 1948 and the event established in 1950 has a theme each year to draw attention to a current world health issue. The WHO puts together regional, local, and international events on this day related to that theme. Local governments also tend to jump on this band-wagon, after all, global health means everyone! You can keep up with it every year, and play a big part in helping to promote global health all around.
