World Health Day is observed on April 7 under the aegis of the World Health Organisation (WHO).
World Health Day also marks the founding of the WHO. It came into being on April 7, 1948.
Every year, a specific health theme is decided to highlight the area of concern. This year, as the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, has wreaked havoc across the world, the tagline for World Health Day 2020 is – Support nurses and midwives. The theme recognises the efforts of nurses and other health workers who are doing their best to help the victims of COVID-19.
Since they are taking care of your health, it becomes necessary to show your respect to them by sending these quotes to the nurses and health workers:
