The Hibbs Lupus Trust Stands for ‘My Health, My Right’ on World Health Day 2024

On World Health Day 2024, the global community is reminded of the fundamental right to health for all individuals. As we reflect on this year’s theme, ‘My health, my right,’ the Hibbs Lupus Trust underscores the importance of this right, particularly for those affected by lupus.

Across the globe, millions face threats to their health due to diseases, disasters, conflicts, and environmental challenges. The burning of fossil fuels not only exacerbates the climate crisis but also contributes to air pollution, claiming lives every 5 seconds. Despite health being recognised as a human right in numerous constitutions, many countries struggle to ensure their populations have access to essential health services. Shockingly, over half of the world’s population lacks full coverage for such services.

At the Hibbs Lupus Trust, we understand the significance of access to quality health services and the impact it has on individuals living with lupus. Lupus is a complex autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body, causing pain, fatigue, and other debilitating symptoms. For those with lupus, access to healthcare, education, and support are crucial in managing their condition and improving their quality of life.

As an organisation dedicated to supporting individuals with lupus, the Hibbs Lupus Trust strives to uphold the right to health for all. Through our advocacy efforts, we work to raise awareness about lupus, improve access to healthcare services, and provide vital resources and support to those in need. We believe that everyone, regardless of their health condition, deserves access to quality healthcare, education, and a healthy environment.

On this World Health Day, we reaffirm our commitment to advocating for the rights of individuals with lupus and standing in solidarity with the global community in promoting health equity and access for all. Together, let us continue to strive for a world where everyone can enjoy their right to health and well-being.

Join us in making health a priority for all, today and every day.
