young people on health & well-being matters through the creative arts
The Art of Health is a Wellcome Trust funded initiative by The Health Research Unit Zimbabwe (THRU Zim) at the Biomedical Research and Training Institute, in partnership with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the and Ardent Creative.
The Art of Health uses the creative arts (eg. music, drama, art and dance) to effectively engage young people on matters pertaining to their health and well-being.
Young people are given the tools, resources and mentorship needed to produce health-themed projects, where all areas of health are explored including; mental, physical, emotional, social and financial well-being. Subjects specific to the region such as the influence of culture on a young person’s perception of health are also tackled.
