March Health Awareness Events & Observances 2015

a red awareness ribbon

Health awareness events create publicity for a health issue and aim to improve and help save lives. Sometimes these events encourage preventative action against conditions becoming more serious. For example, many cancer campaigns focus on early detection which is often crucial for treatment success.

These events can also provide a focus for fund raising efforts, with money raised supporting those in need and funding further research into the condition or health issue concerned.

The awareness lists at What Health were first created about 10 years ago. Over time many of these events have grown to become significant national or international observances. The growth and success of awareness campaigns are reflected by the large variety of awareness ribbons and wrist bands currently available.[cont'd]
