The World Health Day is celebrated worldwide on 7 April, which marks the anniversary of the founding of WHO in 1948. Each year a theme is selected for World Health Day that highlights a priority area of public health concern in the world. The theme for 2013 is high blood pressure.

Itoozhi Ayurveda Foundation is conducting free blood pressure checking camp on April 7 at Itoozhi Namboothiri’s Ayurveda Nursing Home on behalf of World Health Day 2013.

High blood pressure is preventable, and can be countered by reducing salt intake, eating a balanced diet, avoiding the harmful use of alcohol, taking regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy body weight and avoiding tobacco use.

Do join in if you are in the neighborhood.
