About this capture
World Health Day 2009
World Health Day, observed on 7th April draws attention to the importance of health for productive and happy lives. Health programming is a major focus of the work of the BBC World Service Trust. We believe health depends not just on the absence of disease, but on physical, mental and social well-being.

Using TV and radio programmes, dramas and soaps, public service announcements and long-term public awareness campaigns, we work in developing countries around the world focusing on five major areas: maternal and child health, HIV and AIDS, sexual and reproductive health, infectious diseases and mental health, substance abuse and violence.
