Racism: The Silent Partner in High School Dropout and Health Disparities

The recent events in Charleston, South Carolina, Baltimore, Maryland, and Ferguson, Missouri, remind us that stigma, inequalities and civil rights injustices remain in our society today.* Unfortunately, skin color plays a large part in how people are viewed, valued and treated. We know that racism, both intentional and unintentional, affects the health and well-being of individuals and communities and stifles the opportunity of many to contribute fully to the future and growth of this nation.

World TB Day

Designed to build public awareness that tuberculosis today remains an epidemic in much of the world, causing the deaths of several million people each year, mostly in the third world. 24 March commemorates the day in 1882 when Dr Robert Koch astounded the scientific community by announcing that he had discovered the cause of tuberculosis, the TB bacillus. At the time of Koch's announcement in Berlin, TB was raging through Europe and the Americas, causing the death of one out of every seven people. Koch's discovery opened the way toward diagnosing and curing tuberculosis.

National Public Health Week

APHA says that despite our best efforts, Americans are not as healthy as they should be. Although we spend more on health care than any other country, the health system is failing and our nation is falling behind in many important measures of what it means to be healthy. We have reached a point where we must examine our health system and the foundation upon which it stands. We have the potential to greatly improve our population’s health in the future.

National Public Health Week 2010

If every one of us commits to promoting good health in our communities, we can create a ripple effect from coast to coast. Through just one neighborhood that makes its public parks accessible, one municipality that launches a bike-helmet safety program, one group of people who join together to bring fresh foods to school, or one health center that offers a vaccination program, we can create a collage of public health successes across the country.

World Health Day 2010

World Health Day will focus on urbanization and health. With the campaign "1000 cities - 1000 lives", events will be organized worldwide calling on cities to open up streets for health activities. Stories of urban health champions will be gathered to illustrate what people are doing to improve health in their cities.

World Health Day 2011

Each year, the Organization selects a key global health issue and organizes international, regional and local events on the Day and throughout the year to highlight the selected area. Among the casualties in emergencies, disasters and other crises (natural, biological, technological, or societal and conflict-related) are often health workers, facilities and services. This, in turn, deprives affected populations of vital health services that can be the difference between life and death.

National Women's Health Week 2010

National Women’s Health Week is a weeklong health observance coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH). National Women’s Health Week empowers women to make their health a top priority. With the theme “It’s Your Time,” the nationwide initiative encourages women to take simple steps for a longer, healthier, and happier life.

The response has been overwhelming with hundreds of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.
