World Health Day 2024

The theme of World Health Day 2024, celebrated April 7, is “My health, my right.”

It has been recognized around the world that the right to health is increasingly being threatened- the factors are many, ranging from conflicts to climate change, all coming together to make health elusive to many people. Lower-resource settings are increasingly affected compared to high-resource settings.

According to the WHO, in 2021, at least 4.5 billion people (about 50% of the world’s population) were not fully covered by essential health services.

We at the International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISID) have a mission to support health professionals, non-government organizations, and governments around the world in their work to prevent, investigate, and manage infectious disease outbreaks when they occur. ISID has a particular focus on countries that have limited resources and which disproportionately bear the burden of infectious diseases. The ISID recognizes the intersection of infectious diseases in humans, animals, and plants, that infectious diseases cross all national and regional boundaries, and that effective long-term solutions require international scientific exchange and cooperation.

We believe actualizing our mission improves access to essential health services, particularly in infectious diseases. Our offerings, like the Knowledge Exchange, provide up-to-date and cutting-edge continuing medical education to researchers, clinicians, and others interested in global health.
