World Health Day April 7, 2021: Building a Fairer Healthier World

Each year the World Health Organization (WHO) highlights a theme for World Health Day. For 2021, it’s “Building a Fairer Healthier World.” The pandemic has underscored disparities in health care, access to resources, income, employment and other factors that can lead to “unnecessary suffering, avoidable illness, and premature death.” WHO calls upon leaders to “Work Together,” “Collect Reliable Data,” “Tackle Inequities” and “Work Beyond Borders.” Media materials conveying these themes are available, along with additional World Health Day information: World Health Day 2021
