Sofia, April 2021

The Internet is full of recipes for a healthy lifestyle. We can learn how to lose weight for hours, how to get rid of the ugly carbuncle and about that miraculous drug that ‘treats everything’... But today, after hundreds of years of technical revolution, in the boom of nanotechnology and the rise of genetics, we still can’t order our health online. That’s why it is life-determining to have access to health information. Health education, health literacy.
During the last month we presented two short videos, with the help of which we are focusing the attention of curious people on topics, connected with health education. It gives knowledge, opportunities and it is responsibility. It brings up and forms proactive attitude towards personal health, stimulates self confidence and is a part of literacy, as well helps us to think critically.
Our team developed the animation ‘About the Advantages of Health Education’ on project ‘My Body – My Rights’, supported by the programme for social responsible business of the company MSD ‘ MSD for Mothers’.
