Speaking on the occasion, she said, “We are celebrating 7th April as World health Day to remember the first formation of World health Organization. You know it was found on 7th April 1948. Every year, the WHO chooses one theme and this year theme they have chosen is “How Safe is your Food – From Farm to Plate, make food safe”. April 22nd is Earth Day.
