World Environmental Health Day 2023

Date, History,Theme and Significance...

Our health is influenced by our surroundings, including the area we live, the food we eat, the atmosphere we live in, and the air we breathe. Living in an environment that is healthy and improves our quality of life is crucial. Public health has a division called environment health that focuses on how people and their environment interact. It contributes to the growth of safe, healthy communities that benefit both people and the environment. Additionally, it aids in highlighting the significance of human health and wellbeing.


World Environmental Health Day is observed annually to examine the connection between people and their environment. Here are some things to keep in mind as we prepare to celebrate the big day-



September 26 is designated as World Environmental Health Day each year. The day is Tuesday this year for World Environmental Health Day.



The International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) has spent the last 32 years attempting to solve the health issues that endanger human life and are the cause of their suffering. The International Federation of Environmental Health announced September 26 to be a yearly celebration of environmental health in 2011. The purpose of this day is to increase environmental health awareness.



The topic for this year's World Environmental Health Day is Global Environmental Public Health: Standing up to protect everyone's health every single day. Environmental health is one of the biggest areas of study in public health because of the many ways that external variables can influence what people consume, how they live, and how they grow. 


On its official website, the International Federation of Environmental Health stated that these forces "can be about addressing our natural environment (as in the case for clean water or sanitation), but they can also be the result of human actions." On this day, a number of organizations join forces to spread the word about the value of environmental health and look into environmental protection strategies.
