Healthcare awareness days and weeks occur throughout the year. We have researched and collated a month by month selection of events in 2015.
The exact days and weeks may vary slightly from year to year but there are rolling annual healthcare events. January is home to ‘National Obesity Awareness Week’ which will run from 12 to 18 January 2015.
Obesity is a major UK public health problem. A quarter of children leaving primary school are now obese .
August is traditionally a quiet time and there tends to be no high profile, public facing health awareness campaigns in this month.
Campaigns can take on clever tactics to promote their cause. For example for a whole month ‘Blue September’ delivers a series of messages in a fun way about ‘facing up to cancer in men’ .
We’ve selected the most visible events in 2015 and will continue to update them throughout the year. If you need support or ideas to promote your healthcare campaign, please do get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
