Each year on April 7th, the World Health Organisation (WHO) observe World Health Day to call for urgent action to eliminate global health inequalities.
The last 12 months have been challenging globally as the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of a well balanced diet and regular exercise for a healthy mind and body.
As advocates of ensuring that our bodies are fuelled by delicious fresh produce we’re pleased to be bringing attention to World Health Day again this year.
Why World Health Day?
WHO have launched a new campaign to ‘build a fairer, healthier world’ as seen in their campaign notes, COVID-19 has shown over the last year or so that some people are able to live healthier lives and have better access to health services than others, solely due to the conditions in which they are ‘born, grown, live, work and age’.
Regardless of the communities in which people are born, those living in vulnerable communities that are less likely to have access to quality health care services are often hit the hardest.
