We are now upon the one-year anniversary of the UN High-level Meeting on NCDs – a landmark event that has helped pushed NCDs to the top of develop, economic, and political agendas.
To mark the one-year anniversary, Arogya World and YP-CDN teamed up to produce a series of op-eds from a variety of public health leaders (including Sir George Alleyne, Nils Daulaire, Princess Dina Mired, Peter Piot, Jill Sheffield, Rachel Nugent, Felicia Knaul, Derek Yach, Ann Keeling, Johanna Ralston). The op-eds will be split between the Guardian’s development blog and the Huffington Post. To read the articles: http://www.arogyaworld.org/global-advocacy-for-ncds/op-eds-and-medi...
Arogya World’s anniversary activities
Arogya World are engaging in some other fantastic efforts to promote the one year anniversary.
Video - We Have a Situation - this is something my colleague Thea Joselow produced with a student intern. We are so pleased with how this turned out and that some groups like Exercise Works are promoting it heavily on Twitter.
HealthyFail - We all know the basics of healthy living - eat healthy foods, exercise. Here, we're collecting "Healthy Fails," the things we do (or don't do) even though we know better.
We believe this humorous meme has all the ingredients to catch on big.
Case Studies – Arogya World has produced a set of case studies on NCD Prevention and Care Approaches that work - the latest one being the approach of New York City. http://www.arogyaworld.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CaseStudy4NYC...
There are 3 other case studies on Arogya World's website - one on UK's approach to salt reduction, one on cervical cancer control in Thailand and one on Agita Sao Paulo's approach to increasing physical activity. Please use these at your meetings and as resources on your websites. These have been written for journalists to use.
