Show your brand’s support to helping create healthier, happier communities around the world on April 7 for World Health Day.

Now more than ever, health and wellness have been weighing on everyone's mind. Use this World Health Day as an opportunity to join others worldwide to focus attention on the importance of global health and showing appreciation of those forging the way for health, safety and wellness in every field.

Over the past 50 years, the World Health Organization (WHO) uses World Health Day to help bring focus and awareness to important health issues with tools to aid discussion. WHO picks each year's subject based on a current pressing health issue and dedicates the week to conferences and activities about the topic. Past themes included insurance, mental health and general wellness to bigger topics, like road safety and the effect of climate change on our health.

This year WHO’s mission is to help build a healthier and fairer world. Their campaign will specifically focus on providing better access to health services to communities and groups that were particularly impacted by COVID-19. In addition, WHO made 2021 the International Year of Health and Care Workers (YHCW) in appreciation for their unwavering dedication all healthcare heroes continue to give in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Whether or not you're in the healthcare industry, showing support to those who were impacted most by COVID-19 can help put your brand’s values on display. Observing can be as simple as encouraging audiences to stay healthy, active and safe or reaching out to local healthcare facilities to see how your brand can volunteer or support them. To learn more about World Health Day and how your brand can show support, visit the World Health Organizations' website for updates, campaign tools and expert information.
