Hello Tfans,

      The 7th of April every year has been designated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as "World Health Day". The day seeks to raise awareness on the importance of health and its determinants.

      Each year draws attention to a specific health topic of concern to people all over the world.

      The date of April 7 marks the anniversary of the founding of WHO in 1948. This year's theme is "Our Planet, Our Health."

      The theme tries to present a unique opportunity for a green and healthy recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic that puts the health of individuals and planet at center stage. An estimated 1 million deaths per year are attributable to known avoidable environmental risks.

      The problems of pollution (Air, water), solid wastes, chemical wastes and negative impacts of climate change are the most pressing environmental public health challenges all around the world. These challenges still persists because of weak governance policies, limited resources and limited leadership and expertise.

      Actions to celebrate this year's World Health Day should focus on building a world with clean air and safe water, sanitation, safe and healthy food available to all.

      Today is a wake up call for more serious and stronger action for the governments at all levels as well as individuals to commit themselves to actions that will improve the environment and quality of life subsequently.

        A clear example of a sick and dying environment which is dealing a death blow to the inhabitants is SOMALIA where drought, harsh weather conditions, environmental pollution is about to wipe out the country.

       As we celebrate this year's World Health Day, we should go back to the drawing board and come out with workable action points to restore our planet and environment and enjoy nature once again.

      Just like Michael Jackson sang, let's join hands together and HEAL THE WORLD.
