Self-care is an essential ingredient to a healthy life outcome, and is best practiced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The 24th of July 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of International Self-Care Day, a milestone, and an opportunity to raise further awareness of the benefits of effective self-management of health.

This year's theme for International Self-Care Day was "#Selfcarepromise". The initiative asked members of the public to pledge to make one self-care promise to themselves. So far, a total of 918 health commitments were written in from all over the world. They can be viewed here.
International Self-Care Day 2021 will lead into the launch of the Self-Care Readiness Index on the 22nd of September. The report ranks self-care in 10 countries, across four enablers: Stakeholder Support & Adoption, Consumer & Patient Empowerment, Self-Care Health Policy and Regulatory Environment. The index was developed by GSCF in cooperation with the WHO.
