April 7th is World Health day; it marks the founding of the World Health Organization

When the UN was formed in 1945, it was decided a global health organisation should be set up.

The World Health Organisation was born on April 7, 1948.

It was decided this anniversary should be marked with a day educating people on an important global health issue.

The first World Health Day was in 1950 and, since then, it has spread awareness on everything from food safety to blood pressure.

The day is also a celebration of the World Health Organisation itself.
