About The Theme: No Time For Liver!

The liver, in many ways, is the reflection of a person’s health.

To the Mesopotamians, the liver was the body’s premier organ, the seat of the human soul, and emotions.

The ancient Greeks linked the liver to pleasure.
The second-largest organ of the body, the Liver is the control tower of the body and has tremendous regenerative prowess. It does many functions, such as bile secretion, filtering toxins, redistributing nutrients and producing digestive enzymes, keeping track of the body’s energy demands, releasing glucose as needed, storage and elimination

Lots of work…. Right? HELLO! We’re just getting started here !!!

For the liver, the “ to-do list” is long and is only second to that of the brain and the number of functions is well over 300 items. But do we really give attention to this hardworking and humble part of our body that it deserves?
Liver diseases account for approximately 2 million deaths per year worldwide, 1 million due to complications of cirrhosis, and 1 million due to viral hepatitis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Cirrhosis is currently the 11th most common cause of death globally and liver cancer is the 16th leading cause of death; combined, they account for 3.5% of all deaths worldwide.

Alcohol-use disorders are on the rise and are at risk of alcohol-associated liver disease.

Approximately 2 billion adults are obese or overweight and over 400 million have diabetes; both of which are risk factors for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma.

The global prevalence of viral hepatitis remains high, while drug-induced liver injury continues to increase as a major cause of acute hepatitis.

Liver transplantation is the second most common solid organ transplantation undertaken however presently less than 10% of global transplantation needs are being met.

According to the Government of India estimates, India has 50 million people infected with viral Hepatitis B and C. However, over the majority of them do not know that they are infected as the symptoms are not visible in early stages. Due to the lack of this awareness, most of them develop complications and succumb to liver cirrhosis or cancer, which require very costly treatment and are often fatal.

That is why to raise awareness around liver health, we want to use the power and influence of cartoons and Illustrations as a communication tool.

Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences with support of Airports Authority of India is Organising First INTERNATIONAL CARTOON CONTEST on Healthy Liver Awareness under THE EMPATHY CAMPAIGN: Empowering People Against Hepatitis.

We identified the main topic of the contest as “NO TIME FOR LIVER”. This is a Call to creative people to highlight the attention the LIVER deserves!
