April 7th: World Health Day

World Health Day, celebrated annually on April 7th, will be devoted to the health workforce crisis.

On this day around the globe, hundreds of organizations will host events to draw attention to the global health workforce crisis and celebrate the dignity and value of working for health. The World Health Organization (WHO) highlights the issue that without caring volunteers and professionals, healthcare cannot reach those in need.

Good healthcare should be accessible to everyone. But with continued cutbacks, good healthcare remains elusive.
