Tomorrow, April 7th, is World Health Day. World Health Day is a global campaign, inviting everyone, from global leaders to the public at large in all countries around the world, to focus on a single health challenge with global impact. World Health Day provides an opportunity for everyone to take action to protect people’s health and well-being.
The topic of World Health Day in 2012 is Ageing and Health with the theme “Good health adds life to years”. The focus is how good health throughout life can help older men and women lead full and productive lives and be good resources for their families and communities. Getting older concerns each and every one of us – whether young or old, male or female, rich or poor – no matter where we live. Think about your parents and grandparents and ways you and your children can help them live healthier lives.
