PAHO’s Global Public Health Day Campaigns
Global public health days provide unique opportunities to raise awareness and understanding about health issues and to mobilize support for action. They can have an impact at any level, from local communities to the international stage. PAHO supports many international days throughout the year but focuses special attention on the seven one-day and two week-long celebrations below.
Each of us can support these campaigns, whether it’s by taking our children to get vaccinated, talking to young people about the devastating health effects of tobacco, or becoming a regular blood donor—we all have a role to play! We invite you to return to this page for updated background information, facts and figures, graphics, videos and photos that will inform and inspire you to help us raise awareness and mobilize action to address these key public health challenges.
