Всемирный день здоровья

World Health Day is celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO). In 1948, WHO held the First World Health Assembly. The Assembly decided to celebrate the World Health Day to mark WHO's founding, and is seen as an opportunity by the organization to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health. The WHO organizes international, regional and local events on the Day related to a particular theme. World Health Day is acknowledged by various governments and non-governmental organizations with interests in public health issues. 7 April 2011 - Drug resistance is becoming more widespread and many infections are no longer easily cured, leading to prolonged and expensive treatment and greater risk of death. For World Health Day WHO calls for urgent and concerted action to slow down the spread of drug resistance, limit its impact today and preserve medical advances for future generations. Antimicrobial resistance is not a new problem but one that is becoming more dangerous; urgent and consolidated efforts are needed to avoid regressing to the pre-antibiotic era.  For World Health Day 2011, WHO is introducing a six-point policy package to combat the spread of antimicrobial resistance.

  1. I'm pretty sure, that people need such a day to remember how important is our health. Actually, people often forget about it or somethimes they don't even imagine how serious problems are with health and drugs in the modern world. To my mind, it's necessary to pay enough attention to problems of health and medicines and, may be, at least on this Day people will think and try to find a decision.

  2. Healht is the most important part of our life, because all our aims,plans,ambitions can't be realize without health.That's why it's really right to pay such great attention to this necessary component of our existence.
