World Health Day which falls every April 7th, the World health Organisation (WHO) promotes global awareness of a specific health issue and serves to commemorate the day this incredibly influential organisation was founded. This year, the organisation has chosen to shine light on one of the more taboo areas of health care – depression. According to WHO’s recent statistics, the current global figure shows around 300 million people suffering with depression, a shocking increase over 18% since 2005. Considering the urgency of this matter, AMSA International has also joined the world in commemoration.
