Why Do Health Workers Count?

Because we need them if we’re ever going to achieve our dream of universal health coverage. Because they help keep us all healthy, happy, and productive. And because they are the bedrock of our health system.

Why else? Tell us what health workers mean to you as we celebrate World Health Worker Week, April 2-8. #HealthWorkersCount #WHWWeek

Also be sure to check out what happens when Health Workers Speak in this gallery of heroic and lifesaving frontline health workers from around the world.
