WHO Celebrates World Humanitarian Day
30th August 2019
Celebrating women on health frontlines
World Humanitarian Day is held every year on 19 August to pay tribute to aid workers who risk their lives in humanitarian service, and to rally support for people affected by crises around the world. This year, WHO honoured the work of women in crises. The article focused on the unsung heroes, who have long been working on the frontlines in their own communities in some of the most difficult terrains.
