World Health Day is celebrated every year on 7 April to mark the importance of health for people to be productive and happy.  The day, which  marks the founding of the World Health Organization, provides an occasion to draw worldwide attention each year to a subject of major importance to global health.  

UN Volunteers have been helping achieve the Millennium Development Goals to reduce child mortality, improve maternal health and combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases. With health among the eleven issues included in the Post 2015 Development Agenda, future UN Volunteer assignments will likely include those directed at attaining the health objectives it will outline. 

Today, 327 UN Volunteers are carrying out assignments in the health sector.  They come from 65 nations and are deployed to 53 countries and territories, holding positions (in descending order of frequency) as medical doctors, midwives,  nurses, health, nutrition and reproductive health officers, health assistants, pharmacists, dentists, and UN dispensary physicians, among others.
