World Health Day was celebrated for the very first time on April 7th 1950. The reason April 7th was chosen is because on April 7th 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO) was established. On April 7th in the year of 1950, the First World Health Assembly came together and urged the group to approve the creation of World Health Day to not only celebrate the founding of WHO, but to bring health awareness to everyone on a global scale. Over seven decades later, World Health Day is still celebrated. Each and every single year, there is a new goal or theme associated with this special celebration. The 2022 goal is for WHO to urge both the governments and the individuals throughout the world to share stories associated with protecting themselves, their health, the planet, and to place a priority on creating societies that are focused on improving their well-being.

World Health Day 2022 is emphasizing the fact that we all should be working together to create equitable health for those of us that are living now and for the generations to come. We should all work towards economies that are healthy. In order to achieve success in this, we must focus on the health and well-being of the people, we should strive for equity among all, and we should make ecological-based sustainability one of our main goals. It will require legislative actions, reforms in the corporate world, and people to be offered support and incentives for living healthy.
