    World Health Day is observed every year on 7th April. The article World Health Day 7th April 2011 published in the website of Med Titans is published as follow-up response by the author for readers and viewers of this blog:
    World Health Day 7th April 2011
    Antimicrobial resistance and its global spread
    Antimicrobial resistance: no action today no cure tomorrow.

    We live in an era of medical breakthroughs with new wonder drugs available to treat conditions that a few decades ago, or even a few years ago in the case of HIV/AIDS, would have proved fatal. On World Health Day 2011, WHO launches a worldwide campaign to safeguard these medicines for future generations. Antimicrobial resistance and its global spread threaten the continued effectiveness of many medicines used today to treat the sick, while at the same time it risks jeopardizing important advances being made against major infectious killers.

  3. Nice reminder of World Health Day.
    Healthy living and not mere absence of disease is real massage.
    Lessons for healthy living, especially of mental health, thinking, actions, habits and behaviour start as impressions and effects from family, school and surrounding.
    We have to watch each and every bit of it carefully, as wrong habits once developed are sometimes difficult to rectify.

  5. Vinod Varma says:

    Thank you for sharing World Health Day’s theme.

    I hope World Health Day’s theme would inspire global healthcare academia and professionals across diverse health systems to transcend barriers of multiple systems to provide a unified solution to patients.

    Life is not possible without water,soil & air. Now those are polluted, which is a matter of grave thinking & threatening of globalisation.

    Health is wealth. A Good Health depends upon climate ,environment & atmosphere. Every Humanbeing thinks that he should be survived in his atmosphere properly.

    Respected Sir,
    Sai Ram.

    Sai Ram

    • Dear Kedar,
      Thank you for your good will message on Rakshabandhan today.

      Rakshabandhan is the bondage that saves us. We are bound by our allegiance to the Satsang, to the Sadguru and to the Satmarga; and Satchidananda is our Saviour.

      We need people of character and honesty to check corruption. The good character can be developed by sound spiritual health, which is the fourth dimension of health. Let’s work towards building a corruption-free society by cultivating a spiritual outlook by working hard, being self-sufficient and developing service attitude with sincerity, honesty and integrity.

      • Kedarnath Sahu says:


        Really I am happy to see the valuable reply of corruption free suggestion regarding my comments.We know that,but Sir; what is the problem (?)in our country.Our country is proud for Sri Ram,Sri Krishna,Vivekananda,Mahatma Gandhi who spared their lives for others with the ornament of SATYA. But,this country’s people are now in the race of corruption. Who is responsible (?).Parents,sons,politicians,employees; or the present education system or society.

        I wish you once more on the auspicious occasion of SWABHABA KABI GANGADHAR MEHER’S Birthday.
        Let`s recall these lines of Gangadhar Meher:
        Biswa dekha madhumayare jeeban…
        Biswa dekha madhumaya…
        When we see the world full of sweet…

  9. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has removed India from the list of polio-endemic countries, suggesting that the wild polio virus had been totally eliminated from the environment. The feat came after India successfully completed an entire year without an incidence of polio.This announcement was made by Union Health and Family Welfare Minister in the presence of Prime Minister at the Polio Summit 2012 held at New Delhi on February 25, 2012.

  10. World Health Day 7th April 2012

    The topic of World Health Day 7th April 2012 is ‘Ageing and Health’ with the theme “Good health adds life to years”. The focus is how good health throughout life can help older men and women lead full and productive lives and be a resource for their families and communities.

    Ageing concerns each and every one of us – whether young or old, male or female, rich or poor – no matter where we live.

  11. Vinod Varma says:

    As you rightly pointed out, good health is important for all of us, irrespective of where we live, what we do and how old are we. I believe disciplined life, balanced diet, proper healthcare, good spiritual mind and a conducive environment are essential for such a life.

    Anaayaasena maranam vinaadainyena jeevanam
    Dehi Me Kripaya Vishno Tvayi Bhaktim Achanchalaam

    I pray to Lord Vishnu, to grant me non-traumatic death, life without much of hardship and unflinching devotion to the Lord.

  12. World Health Day 7th April 2013

    The theme for World Health Day 7th April 2013 is High Blood Pressure. The risk of developing high blood pressure can be reduced by doing regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy body weight. The ultimate goal of maintaining blood pressure within normal limit is to reduce heart attacks and strokes. Specific objectives of the campaign are to raise awareness of the causes, consequences, complications and prevention of high blood pressure.

  13. Dr.Binod Bihari Naik says:

    Respected Sir,

    WHO has chosen the 7th April as world health day which is very auspicious because No 7 denotes 7days in a week, 7 seas, 7 land pieces of world, and last but not the least 7 portions of body such as skin, subcutaneous fat, muscles, bone, marrow, blood, and semen for which the human being is to be aware and to maintain for further development in the spheres such as mental, social and spiritual. Hence as a doctor by profession, your publication of heath messages since 2010 is definitely beneficial to the readers and society.

    Your last message relating to World Health Day 2013 that is how to get rid from hypertension will definitely revolutionize awareness among world adults as many are in epidemic of same due to hectic life style. I conclude here with hope of further enriched health tips to society.

    With regards and thanks,
    Your Divine Brother

Mount Sinai is particularly renowned for translating discoveries from the laboratory into new and better ways of preventing, diagnosing, and treating disease. Teams of physicians and scientists work together to devise groundbreaking approaches, many of which are initially available at only a handful of facilities in U.S.A. – some, only at Mount Sinai.

  15. World Health Day 7th April 2014

    The theme for World Health Day 7th April 2014 is ‘small bite, big threat’. World Health Day 2014 will spotlight some of the most commonly known vectors such as mosquitoes, sand flies, and ticks responsible for transmitting a wide range of parasites and pathogens that can cause many different illnesses. Mosquitoes transmit malaria as well as filaria, dengue fever, yellow fever and Japanese encephalitis. The goal of the World Health Day 2014 campaign is better protection from vector-borne diseases, especially for families living in areas where diseases are transmitted by vectors, and travellers to countries where they pose a health threat. The campaign also advocates for health authorities in countries where vector-borne diseases are a public health problem or emerging threat, to put in place measures to improve surveillance and protection.

  17. No action today, no cure tomorrow. Let’s pay attention to prevention for health retention..

  18. Susanta Purohit says:

    Prevention is far better than cure. For this creating awareness is of vital important as we see generally that even educated people choose to be unaware of many steps to be taken for safe guarding the health of themselves as well as that of their near and dear ones.

  21. World Health Organization (WHO) held the First World Health Assembly in 1948 and decided to celebrate 7th April of each year, with effect from 1950, as the World Health Day to mark its founding date .It is seen as an opportunity by the organization to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health each year.

    World Health Organization

    World Health Day 7th April 2017 aims to mobilize action on depression. This condition affects people of all ages, from all walks of life, in all countries. It impacts on people’s ability to carry out everyday tasks, with consequences for families, friends, and even communities, workplaces, and health care systems. At worst, depression can lead to self-inflicted injury and suicide. A better understanding of depression – which can be prevented and treated – will help reduce the stigma associated with the illness, and lead to more people seeking help.

  22. Mental Health is equally important as Physical Health. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely an absence of disease or infirmity.
