International Self-Care Day provides a focus and opportunity to raise the profile of healthy lifestyle self-care programmes around the world.

The WHO recognized the importance of self-care back in the late 1970s.

In 2011, the International Self Care Foundation (ISF) was created in Great Britain. It is a charity whose mission is to collaborate with all stakeholders and implement science-based practices for self-care and health.

Self-care describes in a practical, person-centred way what we should all be doing to maintain our health, wellness and wellbeing. Through self-care people can be healthier and remain so into old age, managing minor ailments themselves. We can also better manage, delay or even prevent the appearance of lifestyle diseases such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and many cancers.
