Home Competition World Health Day 2024 Art Competition

To celebrate World Health Day 2024, the World Health Organization South-East Asia Regional Office is organizing an art competition on the theme ‘My Health, My Right.’

We invite people of all age groups to share through their artwork how they envisage health as a human right and what health means to them personally.

What does the right to health mean to you? Availability / accessibility / acceptability / quality ? What does a human rights-based approach to health look like?” Equality/non-discrimination; participation and accountability?

Take up your brushes, pencils, or digital tools, and shine the spotlight on how everyone regardless of their race, colour, gender, language, religion, political or other opinions, national or social origin, property, birth, or other status is entitled to the highest attainable standard of health.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a meaningful movement towards a world in which everyone enjoys their right to health.
