"The Right to Health" Cartoon has been developed in recognition of the fact that improving awareness and understanding of the right to health is an essential prerequisite to operationalizing this right.

"HIV/AIDS Stand Up for Human Rights" Cartoon launched by the United Nations Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the United Nations Joint Programme for HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the World Health Organization (WHO), is designed to empower young people to promote human rights in relation to HIV/AIDS, to raise awareness of the key linkages between HIV/AIDS and human rights, to demystify the disease and to combat the myths and taboos associated with HIV and AIDS.
