This World Health Day, 06 April, the Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA) stands alongside the City of Johannesburg’s Health Department in reaffirming our collective commitment to building healthier communities.

The purpose of World Health Day is to create awareness about health care and working conditions, and through training and support, aims to better equip health practitioners to provide better health services.

The theme for World Health Day 2024 is ‘My health, my right’. This year’s theme was chosen to champion the right of everyone, everywhere to have access to quality health services, education, and information, as well as safe drinking water, clean air, good nutrition, quality housing, decent working and environmental conditions, and freedom from discrimination.
