Health according to World Health Organisation (WHO) is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease. Physical health is about your body while mental health is how you think and feel.
This year’s World Health Day with theme “Year of the Nurse and Midwife” is dedicated to nurses and midwives.
This is to appreciate their contributions in making our world a healthier one.
Nurses are persons trained to take care of the sick or the infirm while midwives are health professionals who care for mothers and newborns around childbirth.
The roles of nurses and midwives especially at this time of COVID-19 have had tremendous positive effects on our lives. They risk their lives along the other health professionals to attend to their patients. On this day, the world says thank you for all you do 🙏❤
Meanwhile it is also good to emphasize the importance of taking good care of our health as “health is wealth.” Some of the ways we can achieve this are by taking balanced diet and by exercising.
