World Thyroid Awareness Day 2022

World Thyroid Day is observed on May 25 to promote awareness and understanding of thyroid diseases, their symptoms, prevention, and treatments. This day came into existence in 2008 on a proposal by the European Thyroid Association. According to a report by Public Health Update, globally, more than 200 million people are estimated to be dealing with thyroid disorders, and 50% of these cases remain undiagnosed.

Key Points:

  • There’s no separate theme for World Thyroid Day this year. However, for Thyroid Awareness Week observed between May 22 and 28, Thyroid Federation international has announced the theme, “It’s not you. It’s your thyroid.” 
  • The theme focused on making sure that people understand the most common symptoms of thyroid disorders and take the necessary steps to cure it.
