World Health Day is celebrated annually on April 7th to raise awareness about promoting health. The date was chosen for the founding day of the World Health Organization (WHO), the reference entity on the topic.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the medical team's actions of Ternium Brazil were fundamental to promoting employees’ wellness. For the WHO, the definition of health is not just the absence of illness but “a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellness.”
In December, the Ternium Medical Service team received an Excellence Award for their work during the pandemic.
Therefore, our most sincere gratitude goes to the staff of Medical Service, who, with all their effort and dedication as a team, helped us during challenging times. From the beginning of the pandemic, with prevention protocols strictly applied daily in the plant, this period has provided security to all employees.
Every year, the WHO adopts a theme that reflects the main topics related to the world’s population health. This year, the theme is “Our planet, our health,” which proposes a reflection on the need for actions that promote the health of the planet and humanity.
