World Health Day
Building a fairer, healthier world
In 1948, the WHO organized the first World Health Assembly which called for the creation of a “World Health Day”. In 1950, the first World Health Day was celebrated on April 7 and since then, it is observed every year on the same day. The main aim of the day is to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization.
This year the theme is building a fairer , healthier world.
At JUBS, a healthier you is our top priority and that is why we do all we do. So today, all we want to talk about is how you can be an ambassador for health, how you can be a healthier you and advice those around you to do the same.
Joyce Meyer said “I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you.”
First of all let’s start with what you can do and what you can advice those around you to do right?
Eat healthy meals
Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet
Drink a sufficient amount of water
Do regular exercise
Wash your hand before eating
Get enough sleep
Avoid smoking, tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, and sugary drinks.
Regular check ups
Get treated by a professional and do not self medicate.
Health promotion focuses on achieving equity in health. Health promotion action aims at reducing differences in current health status and ensuring equal opportunities and resources to enable all people to achieve their fullest health potential. People cannot achieve their fullest health potential unless they are able to take control of those things which determine their health. This must apply equally to women and men.
We are here for you on this journey to a good health. Let’s create a healthier world together.
