This year’s World Mental Health Day, on 10 October, comes at a time when our daily lives have changed considerably as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The past months have brought many challenges: for health-care workers, providing care in difficult circumstances, going to work fearful of bringing COVID-19 home with them; for students, adapting to taking classes from home, with little contact with teachers and friends, and anxious about their futures; for workers whose livelihoods are threatened; for the vast number of people caught in poverty or in fragile humanitarian settings with extremely limited protection from COVID-19; and for people with mental health conditions, many experiencing even greater social isolation than before. And this is to say nothing of managing the grief of losing a loved one, sometimes without being able to say goodbye.

Since 2004, more than 5 million people have joined WDF’s campaign on World Diabetes Day. They have walked through villages, suburbs and metropolises worldwide, spreading awareness about diabetes prevention and care. This year, large gatherings are not possible in many places because of COVID-19. Yet the campaign's message - Take Steps to Prevent Diabetes - is more important than ever. Regular exercise helps keep blood sugar levels stable, reduces the risk of developing chronic diseases, and makes all bodily functions work better, including immunity. This year, we will be walking all November to mark World Diabetes Day on Nov 14.

Being above a healthy weight is a leading preventable cause of cancer, but less than half of all Australians are aware of this link. There is now strong evidence that being above a healthy weight and having increased toxic or visceral fat around your organs, can trigger 13 types of cancer. Almost 4,000 cancer cases in Australia in 2010 were thought to be attributable to being above a healthy weight. We want to raise awareness of this and encourage people to make healthy lifestyle choices. One way you can reduce your risk of weight gain is to avoid sugary drinks.

Universal health coverage is WHO’s number one goal. Key to achieving it is ensuring that everyone can obtain the care they need, when they need it, right in the heart of the community. Progress is being made in countries in all regions of the world. But millions of people still have no access at all to health care. Millions more are forced to choose between health care and other daily expenses such as food, clothing and even a home. This is why WHO is focusing on universal health coverage for this year’s World Health Day, on 7 April.
