Health for All: World Health Day 2024

Around the world, millions of people are at risk of losing their right to health due to various factors. These factors include diseases, disasters, conflicts, and environmental issues. Diseases and disasters continue to threaten human lives, while conflicts devastate communities by causing death, pain, hunger, and psychological distress. Additionally, the burning of fossil fuels not only contributes to the climate crisis but also compromises our right to breathe clean air.

Despite many countries acknowledging health as a human right in their constitution, many have not implemented laws to ensure that their populations have access to essential health services. As a result, more than half of the world’s population was not fully covered by necessary health services in 2021.

To address these challenges and advocate for the right of everyone to have access to quality health services, education, information, safe drinking water, clean air, good nutrition, quality housing, decent working conditions, and a clean environment without discrimination in accessing healthcare. The theme for World Health Day 2024 is ‘My Health My Right’.
