“Food Safety” is the theme for World Health Day 2015. Few of the things that affect national food safety systems are consumption & distribution, storage, alteration in food production, emerging patterns and adulteration. These things needs to be checked at the soonest and stringent policies should be made at local and international levels to harness the quality of food being supplied to the masses.

In this era of globalization, the supply chain of food items is being carried out at international levels and is not restricted to local countries. Therefore, it is high time to reinforce the food safety systems in and between all countries through transparent policies. No doubt, WHO is doing an exceptional job in promoting, executing campaigns and making efforts to improve food safety right from the grass-root level.

World Health Organization (WHO) works in conjunction with the UN Food and Agriculture to aware countries about food safety emergencies through an international information system.

  • Use clean and safe water while cooking

The prime purpose of World Health Day 2015 is to aware the mass about the importance of food safety and how it helps everyone in leading a healthy life.
