NCDS 365 is a multinational project that has recognized the urgent and pressing need to address non-communicable diseases by sharing daily messages in a bid to create awareness while dispelling myths and misconception around the NCDs. The project leverages social media and the huge mobile penetration to share these messages. These messages, sourced from reputable organizations such as NCD Alliance, World Health organization among others are posted on Stowelink (host) and partners social media sites i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, WhatsApp and Website. In order to track the reach, the social media analytics are collated every month across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The stats inform on the projects impact in improving awareness and enabling people to influence their health outcomes.
NCDS 365 project is organized in themes posted monthly. The thematic focus covers the entirely family of Non- Communicable Diseases. While the major focus in NCDs, the project also sensitizes on the link between NCDS and Communicable Diseases. For example, in the month of April, the project focused on the demystifying NCDS in relations to COVID-19 which is a current pandemic.
