2018 - the year of...?

Each year, the United Nations seeks to raise awareness of a global issue by designating an International Year dedicated to the topic, however no theme has been advertised for 2018 as yet. We are, however, still in the midst of the Decade of Action on Nutrition, which runs from 2016 until 2025.

UN statistics reveal that 155 million children are stunted and 1.9 billion adults over 18 years of age are overweight. With health targets relating to mental health and wellbeing, substance abuse, road traffic accidents, sexual health, and chemical use, there are many ways individuals can get involved and make a difference.

Improving personal health and wellbeing is a popular new year's resolution, so why not check out WHO's goals and commit to one or more this year?
