World Health Day is celebrated on the 7th of April every year to draw attention to a global health concern. The global health awareness day also scripts the foundation anniversary of the World Health Organization (WHO).
While the COVID-19 pandemic showed us the healing power of science, it also highlighted the inequities in our world. The pandemic has revealed weaknesses in all areas of society and underlined the urgency of creating sustainable well-being societies committed to achieving equitable health now and for future generations without breaching ecological limits. The present design of the economy leads to inequitable distribution of income, wealth and power, with too many people still living in poverty and instability. A well-being economy has human well-being, equity and ecological sustainability as its goals. These goals are translated into long-term investments, well-being budgets, social protection and legal and fiscal strategies. Breaking these cycles of destruction for the planet and human health requires legislative action, corporate reform and individuals to be supported and incentivized to make healthy choices.
WHO estimates that more than 13 million deaths around the world each year are due to avoidable environmental causes. This includes the climate crisis which is the single biggest health threat facing humanity. The climate crisis is also a health crisis.
Among the biggest health threat that humanity faces during this pandemic, are climate crisis , the burden of a polluted planet, and increased chronic diseases like cancer, asthma, and heart disease add on to the extreme health crisis.

‘Eat to live, not live to eat. Happy World Health Day 2022‘
