World Health Day

This year's World Health Day, April 7, marks the 64th anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization. Each year, this global campaign chooses to focus on a single health challenge with global impact. The theme chosen for 2012 is "Aging and Health: Good Health Adds Life to Years." This topic will bring more awareness to how good health throughout life can help older men and women lead more full and productive lives.

In recent years, general health has been determined by, and contributes more to, broad social trends such as working in larger cities, changing family patterns, new technology, and globalizing economies. Another of of these recent changes seen is the aging population. As we are seeing more people live to age 80 or 90, the world will soon have one of the largest populations of older adults than ever before. With life expectancy increasing across the globe, life-long healthy habits will help people reach these older years. Healthy aging is linked to health status in earlier stages of life, such as an obese, or overweight, adolescent who may run the risk of developing a variety of chronic diseases affecting their future adult life. It is up to everyone to be conscious of their health and do good things today to have an even better tomorrow!
