World Health Day 2021

World Health Day is celebrated annually on 7 April and each year draws attention to a specific health topic of concern to people all over the world. The theme for 2021 is "Building a fairer, healthier world".

The date of 7 April marks the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1948. For this year, WHO notes that COVID-19 has highlighted that some people are able to live healthier lives and have better access to health services than others - entirely due to the conditions in which they are born, grow, live, work and age.

All over the world, some groups struggle to make ends meet with little daily income, have poorer housing conditions and education, fewer employment opportunities, experience greater gender inequality, and have little or no access to safe environments, clean water and air, food security and health services. This leads to unnecessary suffering, avoidable illness, and premature death, states WHO, and it harms our societies and economies.

WHO is calling on leaders to ensure that everyone has living and working conditions that are conducive to good health.

Haifa Group is committed to continue in the global efforts and to act in accordance with the goals of the UN Sustainable Development Program. One of the SDG goals is "Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages ".  This goal is all about ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being at all ages is essential to sustainable development.
