Right to health care is perhaps one of those rights which in 2015 would be assumed to have been given to all individuals on the planet. The reality however is quite contradictory as many nations are still on their way to get an access to this basic right. To portray this bitter reality, thousands of artists from around the world joined hands to raise awareness about this pressing issue by drawing posters for 'Poster for Tomorrow'.

The 100 best posters have been selected for the exhibition which is a joint effort with Human Rights Commission of Pakistan as it vows for human rights in its seventh edition on December 10, 2015 (International Human Rights Day).

With the idea stemming from France in 2009, every year Poster for Tomorrow chooses a basic human right to address, with the theme for this year’s competition being universal right to healthcare. Globally, artists showed their concern regarding health care by making striking posters. This time round, 4980 entries were submitted setting a new record.

Universal access to healthcare now, Eradication of preventable Diseases and Access to clean water were the specific topics portrayed in the posters.

Displayed at The Second Floor (T2F), the first day of the exhibition saw Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) chairperson Zohra Yusuf and human rights and peace activist Professor S. Haroon Ahmed assert on the importance of right to health care.

The purpose of this year's theme was to stand for equal access, quality, accessibility and acceptability for healthcare; nobody should die because they can’t afford to pay. As many posters portrayed accessibility to healthcare and people deprived of clean water.

Sanctions and war was one bitter truth portrayed in many posters. Beside this ‘Right for All’ and ‘A matter of luck’ were the most prominent pieces among the top 10. Drawn by Selcuk Ozis from Turkey and Baowen Zhang from China, the posters showed healthcare as a matter of luck and privilege for some people.
