ON THIS OCCASION , DR. ASHISH ANEJA TOLD THAT WORLD HEALTH DAY IS CELEBRATED ON 7TH APRIL EVERY YEAR TO MARK THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION. IT PROVIDES US WITH A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO MOBILIZE ACTION AROUND A SPECIFIC HEALTH TOPIC OF CONCERN TO PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD. THE THEME OF OUR 2017 WORLD HEALTH DAY CAMPAIGN IS DEPRESSION. DEPRESSION AFFECTS PEOPLE OF ALL AGES, FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE, IN ALL COUNTRIES. IT CAUSES MENTAL ANGUISH AND IMPACTS ON PEOPLE’S ABILITY TO CARRY OUT EVEN THE SIMPLEST EVERYDAY TASKS, WITH SOMETIMES DEVASTATING CONSEQUENCES FOR RELATIONSHIPS WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND THE ABILITY TO EARN A LIVING. AT WORST, DEPRESSION CAN LEAD TO SUICIDE, NOW THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH AMONG 15-29-YEAR OLDS.

WORLD HEALTH DAY IS ONE OF EIGHT OFFICIAL GLOBAL HEALTH CAMPAIGNS MARKED BY WHO, ALONG WITH WORLD TUBERCULOSIS DAY , WORLD IMMUNIZATION WEEK , WORLD MALARIA DAY , WORLD NO TOBACCO DAY , WORLD AIDS DAY , WORLD BLOOD DONOR DAY , AND WORLD HEPATITIS DAY.

MORE THAN 100 FACULTY MEMBERS, STAFF AND STUDENTS FROM ALL THE BRANCHES AND INSTITUTES CAME FOR THE HEALTH CHECK-UP. ON THIS OCCASION, ADMINISTRATOR DR. ASHOK AGGARWAL WAS ALSO PRESENT.
