Almost half of the world’s population is at risk of vector-borne diseases. Diseases such as malaria, dengue, leishmaniasis and yellow fever are preventable, yet they have the biggest impact on some of the world’s poorest people.
Nowadays, because of environmental changes and the rapid and increased movement of people and goods around the world, the risks of acquiring these diseases are much more widespread.
The World Health Day 2014 campaign focuses on vectors, the diseases they cause and simple precautions we can all take to protect ourselves and our families.
Know what to do. Be protected! Celebrate the World Health with WHO, AMSA Philippines and AMSA Philippines SCOPH.
HAPPY WORLD HEALTH DAY!
