Zero Discrimination Day 01 March  

On Zero Discrimination Day, 1 March, people celebrate the right of everyone to live a full and productive life—and live it with dignity. Zero Discrimination Day highlights how people can become informed about and promote inclusion, compassion, peace and, above all, a movement for change. Zero Discrimination Day is helping to create a global movement of solidarity to end all forms of discrimination. 

This year is the tenth anniversary of Zero Discrimination Day and the theme is “To protect everyone’s health, protect everyone’s rights”. 

“To protect everyone’s health, protect everyone’s rights” emphasizes the interconnection between public health and human rights. This phrase underscores the idea that ensuring the well-being of individuals and communities requires not only addressing health concerns but also upholding and safeguarding their fundamental rights. 

It suggests that efforts to promote public health must be conducted in a manner that respects and upholds the rights of all individuals, including marginalized and vulnerable populations. This includes ensuring access to healthcare services, protecting against discrimination, upholding privacy and confidentiality, and promoting autonomy and dignity. 

By prioritizing human rights alongside public health measures, societies can create environments that foster trust, cooperation, and inclusivity, ultimately leading to better health outcomes for everyone. This approach recognizes that protecting health requires addressing social determinants and structural inequalities that impact individuals’ ability to access healthcare and live healthy lives. 

Zero Discrimination Day is observed annually on March 1st. The day was first celebrated by the United Nations in 2014 to promote equality before the law and in practice throughout all of the member countries. The initiative aims to combat all forms of discrimination and raise awareness about the importance of embracing diversity, tolerance, and inclusion. 

The concept of Zero Discrimination Day emerged from the UNAIDS program, which sought to address discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS. However, it has since expanded to encompass discrimination based on, disability, religion, and other factors. 

The day serves as a platform for various organizations, governments, and individuals to come together to advocate for policies and actions that promote equality and human rights for all. It encourages people to reflect on their own biases and behaviors and take positive steps towards creating a more inclusive and just society. 

Through events, campaigns, and educational initiatives, Zero Discrimination Day seeks to inspire individuals and communities to embrace diversity, challenge discrimination wherever it occurs, and promote a world where everyone can live with dignity and respect, regardless of their differences. protection, social dialogue, and fundamental principles and rights. 

Supporters contend that promoting decent work and a fair globalization agenda focused on fundamental rights, employment opportunities, social protections, and constructive social dialogue between governments, employers, and workers is key to putting social justice at the core.
