World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7th April. This year is of special importance a on 7 April 2023  ̶  World Health Day  ̶  the World Health Organization will observe its 75th anniversary.

In 1948, the WHO held the First World Health Assembly. The Assembly decided to celebrate 7 April of each year, with effect from 1950, as the World Health Day. 

Each year, World Health Day focuses on a particular theme. Themes throughout the years have varied, but they always cover important issues of the day, including everything from the Global Polio Eradication and staying active while aging, to road safety. All of these issues have been deemed to be important enough to global health that they merited an occasion of their very own on this date. The theme for 2023 is "Health for All"
