Every year World Health Day is celebrated on April 7, this year the theme being, ‘Our Planet, Our Health’. The theme is quite relevant as the aftermath of 195 member governments in IPCC approved in its latest report saying that within two years, we are entering a point of no-return.

Global warming is the biggest threat to mankind, in order to limit it around 1.5’ C, we need to start reducing greenhouse emissions from the year 2025. In the latest report, it is said that emission would peak by 2025, and will start reducing by a whopping 43% by the year 2030.

In the same time period, methane is also estimated to reduce by a third. Every year more than 13 billion deaths occur due to avoidable environment according to World Health Organization.

On the occasion of World Health Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his gratitude towards the health sector saying that, ‘it is their hard work that has kept our planet protected.’

In a tweet the world leader said that, ‘The GOI is working tirelessly to augment India’s health infrastructure. The focus is on ensuring good quality and affordable health to our citizens.’  

India is home to world’s largest healthcare scheme, Ayushman Bharat, which has been a success across the country in providing complex medical treatment covered under the insurance. It makes every Indian proud that our nation is home to the world’s largest healthcare scheme, Ayushman Bharat. I feel very happy when I interact with beneficiaries of schemes such as PM Jan Aushadhi. Our focus on affordable healthcare has ensured significant savings for the poor and middle class. At the same time, we are strengthening our Ayush network to further boost overall wellness,’ he said.
Other than affordable healthcare, India’s efforts towards a healthy planet are commendable. India achieved its Paris agreement goal, and surpassed its nationally determined contribution (NDC) target which was 40% capacity by non-fossil fuel sources. The government of India is also focused on use of compressed bio-gas.

Every year since 1948, WHO celebrates World Health Day to spread awareness about physical and mental health. “In the midst of a pandemic, a polluted planet, increasing diseases like cancer, asthma, heart disease, on World Health Day 2022, WHO will focus global attention on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy and foster a movement to create societies focused on well-being,” said WHO.
