World Health Day 2022


The date of April 7 marks the anniversary of the founding of World Health Organization in 1948.

At NMS we celebrate this day with a message from Helena Canhão, Director of NMS, under the motto given to this day in 2022: Our Planet, Our Health.

"World Health Day is celebrated on April 7. A moment to reflect, as the WHO defends, that health is not just the absence of disease, but also physical, mental and social well-being.

The health of the individual also depends on the health of animals and the environment that surrounds us, in a global concept of One Health. The health of the planet is both a cause and a consequence of the health of populations. In this time of conflict, difficulties and inequalities, celebrating World Health Day must serve the ultimate goal of promoting our health and that of our planet."
