World Thyroid Day 2019
Commitment to the Thyroid
Established by the ETA in 2008 and joined by the American Thyroid Association (ATA) and the two other sister associations, the Asia Oceania Thyroid Association (AOTA) and the Latin America Thyroid Association (LATS), as well as by the International Thyroid Federation (ITF), World Thyroid Day (WTD) 25th of May is the Day created for and dedicated to the hundreds of millions of persons around the world living with a thyroid problem.
It is a day that reminds us more strongly of our responsibility towards, among others, the millions living in the world with insufficient iodine, the many children and pregnant women with thyroid diseases, and those lacking access to healthcare facilities or a doctor.
