Photo contest questions perceptions of diability
At the time of launching the International classification of functioning, disability and health (ICF), WHO invited photographers around the world to participate in a photo contest called "Images of health and disability". The aim was to raise questions about what health really is, and awareness of how everybody in the course of their life experiences some kind and degree of health decrement or disability. Several hundred photographs came in, of which 47 won awards. This issue of the Bulletin shows one from childhood and one from old age.
