World Health Day is celebrated annually on April 7. In 1948, the World Health Organization was established on this day.
Since 1950, World Health Day has been held annually to draw the attention of people around the world to the major public health problems facing the international community.
Each year, a theme for World Health Day is selected that highlights one of WHO's priority areas of work.
2020 is the International Year of Nursing and Obstreting Services. Nurses and midwives make up nearly half of all healthcare workers in the world. According to statistics, there are more than a million nurses, midwives and paramedics in Russia. They work at all levels of the health system.
Wishing good health is a well-established tradition. But it becomes especially important during a pandemic of coronavirus infection worldwide.
