World Health Day 2022: Celebrate Your Health

HEALTH INSURANCE


world health day celebrate your health

Health is the greatest possession that deserves to be treasured throughout life. To celebrate health, World Health Day is commemorated every year on the 7th of April across the world to raise awareness about good health and the well-being of people. World Health Day also marks the anniversary of the foundation of WHO in 1948. The World Health Organization uses its foundation day to highlight current global health as a priority as well as to honour the organisation and its work over the years.

World Health Day is one of the eight official global health annual campaigns marked by WHO, along with World Tuberculosis Day, World Immunization Week, World Malaria Day, World No Tobacco Day, World AIDS Day, World Blood Donor Day, and World Hepatitis Day.

Theme for the World Health Day 2022

Each year, World Health Day is celebrated with a specific theme. Last year in 2021, the theme was “Build a Fairer, Healthier World”, and this year the theme is “Our Planet, Our Health”. This year WHO is focussing on taking urgent actions to keep humans and the planet healthy and fostering a campaign to create societies that know the importance of healthy living.

Climate and health crises are driven by political, social, and commercial decisions. Over 90% of individuals are exposed to polluted air as a result of the excess usage and burning of fossil fuels. Extreme weather conditions, land degradation, and water affect well-being. Pollution and plastics have found their way into our food chain and can be discovered at the bottom of our deepest oceans and tallest mountains. Systems that create highly processed, unhealthy foods and drinks are fueling an obesity epidemic, increasing cancer and heart diseases. Hence the theme “Our Planet, Our Health” is relevant considering the gravity of toxicity in the environment over the past few years.

Through this theme, World Health Organization urges governments and the public to share the steps they are taking to protect the planet and their health to make this world a better place to live in.

How Buying Health Insurance is a Bonus this Year

Health Insurance should be the most essential part of your investments for its comprehensive benefits and usefulness in long run. After combatting the pandemic for almost two years, health insurance remains paramount for a secure future.

  • Increasing Healthcare Costs: India's healthcare system comprises both public and private providers, with the latter catering mostly to the urban population. India has an excellent healthcare system, and it has become a popular destination for medical tourists seeking high-quality care.
    Medical expenses cover a wide variety of charges, such as doctor's fees, pharmaceutical prices, diagnostic tests, and so on. The prices, on the other hand, are greater for the general public. Even simple medical operations have grown expensive in the nation, particularly in private hospitals.

  • Cashless Payment: Transactions have become much easier as a result of digitalization. The use of digital channels for paying premiums in the context of health insurance has become conceivable. It is one of the most significant advantages of health plans is the cashless claim facility.
    Imagine the magnitude of stress a family goes through during the hospitalisation of any family member. Under the cashless claim facility, the medical expenses are directly settled with the hospital by the insurer, subject to policy terms and conditions. A policyholder can use this facility using a health card.

  • Increase in Lifestyle Diseases: In today’s times, illnesses are occurring not just in older adults but also affecting millions of youngsters. Owing to lifestyle factors, ailments like diabetes, hypertension, etc. have increased over the years. So, when health problems are likely to occur, it is wise to have a health cover.

  • Helps Save Taxes: In an age of inflation, many families look for investment options to boost their savings. Opting for health plans gives the dual benefit of getting health cover as well as saving on taxes. Policyholders can get deductions on the premium paid under Section 80D of the Income Tax Act.

  • More Than Just Hospitalisation Cover: Medical insurance is absolutely essential as it covers other medical expenses in addition to hospitalisation costs including pre-and post-hospitalisation medical expenses, OPD expenses, ambulance cover, diagnostic tests, surgeries, etc. In addition, such plans also bring additional benefits such as increased coverage through no claim bonuses.

‘Care’ by Care Health Insurance (Formerly Religare Health Insurance) is comprehensive health coverage for your family members that will take care of all your worries related to any medical expenses.
