Annually, on 7th April we celebrate World Health Day. This year’s theme ”Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere” encourages all of us to participate. According to World Health Organisation (WHO), at least half of the world’s population still do not have full coverage of essential health services and about 100 million people are still being pushed into “extreme poverty” (living on $1.90 or less a day) in order to pay for health care . Thus, WHO has proposed tools and messages to guide and inspire everyone around the globe. Individuals, civil society and health workers should actively contribute, for instance, through clear and instant communication of needs and expectations to local policy-makers and/or through organisation of activities like discussions, concerts and interviews to provide people with an opportunity to interact and share their views related to health and health care .
