Today is World Health Day

December 19, 2023

At Mosquito Squad, we prefer to focus on the positive (enjoying outdoor living) rather than the negative (avoiding disease), but it’s no exaggeration to say that mosquitoes are a leading cause of illness and death in the world. That's why we support Malaria No More, which is working to end malaria deaths around the world.

According to the World Health Organization website:

"April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight a priority area of concern for the World Health Organization. Over the past 50 years this has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, maternal and child care, and climate change. The celebration is marked by activities which extend beyond the day itself and serves as an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on these important aspects of global health."

Today is a great day to reflect on the many health advancements that have been made in our world, and the many more that are yet to come. We hope that you have good health this year!
