World Health Day is celebrated on 7 April every year to mark the anniversary of the founding of World Health Organization. It provides us with a unique opportunity to mobilize action around a specific health topic of concern to people all over the world. The theme for 2017 World Health Day is depression. There is a beautiful write-up by the President, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, Pharm. Ahmed .I. Yakasai.

The write up on Depression by the President will serve as the Healthy living in this edition.

Original research section is still waxing strong.  There are interesting articles for us to enjoy in the section.

Viewpoint is not left out.  This time around, Viewpoint is on ‘Arise, O Compatriots’ which focuses on the State of the Nation as to the danger of ethnic issues staring us in the eye. We are encouraged as a people, to arise and serve our father land with love, strength and faith.

Enjoy reading.
