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 bodys 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 bodys energy demands, releasing glucose as needed, storage and elimination

Lots of work. Right  ? HELLO   !   Were just getting started here   !!!

For the liver  , the to-do list is long and is only second  to that of the brain and number of functions  are  well over 300 items. But do we really give attention to this hardworking and humble  part of our body that it deserves?
Liver diseases accounts 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 hepato-cellular 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 majority of them do not know that they are infected as the symptoms are not visible in early stages. Due to 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 the 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!
