Regional public health days offer great potential to raise awareness and understanding about health issues and mobilize support for action, from the local community to the international stage. There are many world days observed throughout the year related to specific health issues or conditions – from Alzheimer's to zoonoses; however, PAHO/WHO focuses particular attention on the days and weeks that PAHO/WHO Member States have mandated as "official" regional public health days.
