STORYLINE:

The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus announced today the winners of the first Health for All Film Festival, aimed to showcase the role of individuals and communities as champions for health and well-being.

For its inaugural Health for All Film Festival, WHO received 1265 submissions from 119 countries. Entries focused on a wide range of topics, such as the challenges of providing healthcare in remote areas and countries in conflict, the realities of living and battling cancer, and the courage and resilience of nurses and midwifes in the face of the most challenging of circumstances.

“WHO is a science-based organization,” said Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, WHO’sDirector-General. “But sometimes stories and films have the power to inspire and to change things in a way that science and evidence don’t. To fulfil WHO’s mission, it’s clear to me that we need to use every tool at our disposal, including the arts.”

Filmmakers were invited to submit a short film for one of three categories: video reports, animation or nurses and midwives.

“The quality and quantity of films submitted surpassed all our expectations,” Dr Tedros said. “Like all good films, the submissions we received are both heart-warming and heart-breaking; uplifting and sobering.”

In the Non-Communicable Diseases category; the winner is "Living without limits", a film about living with diabetes type-1 in Mexico, made by BBC Story Works for the Helmsley Charitable Trust.

A biologist from Israel Nitai Steinberg won the student category for the film "Antibiotic resistance" about the rising threat of antimicrobial resistance.

In the nurses and midwives group, the winner is "War & Grace" by Sonia Lowman from International Medical Corps.

In the video reports category, the film "A doctor's dream", which was produced by The Drugs for the Neglected Diseases initiative with Scholars and Gentlemen, a production company from South Africa won the first prize.
