Recent from World Health Organization (WHO):
World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Noncommunicable Diseases – The Beat of Change: Rheumatic Heart Disease 2021 Health Equity film prize” – below is their description.
“The Beat of Change: Rheumatic Heart Disease” is a documentary filmed in Mozambique about a disease still affecting mainly poorest populations, among young adults and especially women. It therefore covers various aspects of lack of equity regarding access to health care and to health prevention. This short film obtained in 2021 the special prize for Health Equity film in the 2nd edition of the Health for All Film Festival by the World Health Organisation. This special prize is in line with WHO’s campaign launched on World Health Day (7 April 2021) for health equity. It’s a film submitted to our festival by the World Heart Federation (Switzerland)
In this film we follow the daily struggles of a young mother from Mozambique, who is diagnosed with Rheumatic heart disease (RHD), to dive into the difficulties, the stigma and the lack of awareness surrounding this devastating disease.
