World Health Day – 7 April

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of International World Health Day. This year the World Health Organization is calling on world leaders to fulfil the pledges they made when they signed the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015.

We are aware that half the world’s population do not have access to essential health services and that an increasing number of other people are having to choose between accessing good health services and other life necessities for themselves and their families.

As women who are blessed with good health care services and carers, Brigidine Sisters recognize the need for us to be willing to advocate for improved services for others who suffer physical, mental and emotional conditions.
