The first week of July, beginning from National Doctors Day (July 1) is observed as Gratitude Week for paying national tribute to healthcare workers who have rendered their selfless service and even sacrificed their lives to protect others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Gratitude Week (Jul1-7) was institutionalised in the year 2020 at the time when the entire world was facing an existential danger and was looking up to the healthcare workers to protect them from the fast-spreading disease.
IHW Council, India’s premier institution for health awareness and advocacy, has been convening doctors, healthcare professionals, celebrities, influencers, media, political leaders, artists, children and general people in marathon events to highlight the nation’s gratitude to these Gods on earth.
