World Health Day

Fri 7th Apr 2028

World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7 April.

The World Health Organisations (WHO) Constitution came into force on 7 April 1948 – a date we now celebrate every year as World Health Day.

Discover more about WHO history through archives, seminars, public health posters and campaigns. This campaign aims to help people better understand what universal health coverage means – what services and support should be available and where.
