Each year, the World observes and appreciates the amazing people working in the health sector. This annual event gives us a chance to highlight the vital work health workers do. This year is no different.

World Health Worker Week is April 5-9, 2021. This is also the year the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the International Year of Health and Care Workers, acknowledging their commitment to fighting against the ongoing pandemic. 

How are you Celebrating World Health Worker Week 2021? 

In the wake of the pandemic, many of us paused to applaud health workers for a superb job in reining in the menace that is COVID-19. Still, do you need a health scare to remind you of the importance of these individuals? And is applause enough? How do you plan to celebrate the frontline health workers you know—and those who you don’t? 

If you’re unsure how to support health workers in a meaningful way, this article can help. Read on for ways you can promote World Health Worker Week 2021. You can do more than merely applaud health workers. You can promote this essential week by participating in a few ways. 

Here’s how: 

Join the #ApplauseIsNotEnough Video Campaign 

This year’s campaign hashtag is intended to find new ways of promoting health workers and aiding them in what they do best—promoting the health of the community. It’s about listening to their needs. And, who better to tell us what health workers need to be healthier, safer, and well-prepared than health workers? 

Do you have a friend or family member who is a healthcare worker? Do you have a doctor? (You should) Talk to them. Find out what healthcare workers in your community need. Then share a video on your social media using #ApplauseIsNotEnough. Tag your local policymakers to help our healthcare heroes get all the resources they need.

This year, the Frontline Health Workers Coalition (FHWC), WHO, and partners are asking health workers what their work-related needs are. If you’re a health worker, it’s easy to take part! Read the short guidance and upload a video! FHWC will share on social media starting April 5 and include health workers’ asks in their future policy recommendations.

This is your chance to help our healthcare heroes get the necessary resources they need.

Take Part in the Conversation 

Your voice matters, and taking part in the #WHWWeek 2021 conversation can prove it. You can use this guide to check out various online activities for the week. That way, you can help spread the word. And, be sure to tell a friend to participate in the conversation and the activities set aside to observe World Health Worker Week 2021. 

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, appreciation for healthcare workers, as well as applications for medical, nursing, and allied health programs, reached new levels. And, the truth is, it shouldn’t take a worldwide health scare to remind us of the importance health workers play in supporting the health of our community. World Health Worker Week is an annual reminder to shine a light on the work health workers do to keep our families safe and healthy, and this year, it’s a reminder that our health workers need more than thanks and applause.

What SCI Students Are Saying

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”


Denise S.
Medical Assistant

“I am extremely grateful for the assistance I received from SCI’s Career Services team. I enjoy where I work and what I do. SCI has helped me succeed in life by getting me the necessary education and by making me a stronger and more confident person.”


Raquel S.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”


Bonnie M
Medical Assistant

“I am now a certified Lab Tech. SCI helped me get an externship, and I came out with a job. After my little sister had cancer, I knew I wanted a career in the medical field that allowed me to help others. I am happy about what I do.”

“Southern Careers Institute totally surpassed my expectations. Once I finished school, the Career Services team helped me find a job. I would tell anyone thinking about starting career training that you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain. I wish I would have started my training sooner.”


Valerie D.

“I am very happy with where I am and where I’m going. Through high school, I struggled with math. When I came to SCI, I enrolled in the Business Accounting Specialist program to see if I could do it. SCI provided me with the accounting skills I needed to help me find a career. Now, I have an amazing career and room to grow in the company.”
