April 7 – World Health Day

April 7 – World Health Day is celebrated annually around the world. As for the history of Health Day, which calls on all people to lead a healthy lifestyle and improve health, the celebration of this day began on April 7, 1948. This day, common to all nations and ethnic groups of the world, has been celebrated in our country since independence.

Celebrating Health Day is an event to draw public attention to their health, to explain its importance and value, to convey what needs to be done to save people’s health. There are many acute health problems facing humanity: diseases caused by environmental pollution, lack of physical activity, widespread bad habits, and other problems.

This year’s Health Day, under the motto “Good health prolongs your life”, calls on older men and women to live a full life and be active members of the family and society in order to live a long and healthy life.

Today, modern technology and the standard of living of many people allow to maintain health, increase the quality and longevity of life. However, the prevention of chronic infectious diseases (cardiovascular disease, lung disease, cancer and diabetes), there is insufficient public awareness.

Often the problem is due to people’s irresponsible attitude to their health, insufficient information on ways to maintain and strengthen it, or lack of access to quality health care.

The most common risk factors for diseases that accelerate the aging process and shorten life are: poor nutrition, low physical activity, smoking, alcohol abuse, drug use, irregular work and rest, inability to cope with stress, not seeing a doctor in time. All this is due to the growth of chronic non-communicable diseases, including cancer, reduced quality of life and longevity.

Within the framework of the Health Day, the regional center for healthy lifestyles organized a number of events (institutions, schools, kindergartens). Cognitive materials are distributed.

“Instead of looking for a cure, look for a way not to get sick.”

“The first wealth is health”. “Health is a combination of physical, spiritual and social well-being”

Dear university professors, staff, students!

Due to the current epidemiological situation, during quarantine, I ask people to stay at home and not go out to avoid getting infected.

Coronavirus is an acute infectious infection. Coronaviruses are characterized by damage to the upper respiratory tract.

The source of infection – a sick person (or carrier), airborne droplets, airborne and much less – household contact, household items. Risk factors include children, people with low immunity, and prolonged exposure to large, poorly ventilated areas.

The pathogen is unstable in the environment, dies under the influence of moderate amounts of disinfectants, ultraviolet light and high temperatures. The coronavirus is stable outside the body and can be stored in the environment for up to 4 days.

The incubation period is 2-3 days. Acute onset of the disease, signs of toxicity (weakness, headache, unexplained fatigue) are mild. Body temperature is very rare, often does not exceed 38 ° C. The main manifestation of coronavirus infection is a runny nose and clear water, which turns into an excessive nature of rhinorrhea. Characterized by severe nasal breathing and decreased sense of smell. Children and debilitated individuals wear out, sore throat, rough cough without mouth and enlarged cervical lymph nodes.

To prevent the disease, follow a healthy lifestyle, increase physical activity, eat a balanced diet. Every two hours – the use of disposable medical masks, rubbing hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, the use of disinfectant antiseptics.

Today, under the slogan “I work for you, you stay at home for me,” doctors around the world are asking residents to stay home to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

 I also urge you to stay home and not go outside during quarantine. We are together!
