Art Gallery: Health For Youth = #HealthForAll

In April, NCD Child launched a global art contest to promote adolescent voices through artistic expression. The contest aimed to bring awareness to how young people are affected by non-communicable diseases and to share their authentic messages with policy stakeholders on a global scale. The theme, a play on World Health Day, was Health For Youth = #HealthForAll.

Young people between the ages 12-21 from around the world were invited to submit their original artwork in two categories: Drawings and Videos. After receiving more than 60 inspiring entries from 25 countries, the following artists were selected as the finalists.

Permission is required to reproduce any of the NCD Child Global Art Contest images or video content.  Please contact the NCD Child Secretariat for additional information.
