World Health Day is a day where global health awareness is raised. It is sponsored by the World Health Organisation. Each year there is a theme and for 2019 it is Universal Health Coverage. This is because millions of people around the world still do not have access to health care and millions more are forced to choose between health care and their daily expenses.
Progress is being made but there is still a lot of work to do which is why days like these are so important.
