Health, as defined by WHO, is a state of complete mental, emotional, and social well-being and not only the absence of sickness or disability.
This year, the World Health Day theme is “Health For All”, which encompasses equal access to good quality health services across all regions with limited or no financial risk. This year the WHO is celebrating its 75th anniversary to look back at the transformations in medicine and health care that have improved the quality of life for so many.
