In January 2021, Stowelink introduced NCD 365 phase 2. The project, which is aimed at elevating heights of NCD literacy across Africa through animated videos, is one month old. The weekly task of providing easy to comprehend information on NCDS has been a continuous process and the response has been very encouraging.
The first video shared was an animation explaining what NCDs are. The information was very crucial because many people are unaware of the diseases. It was a great start in introducing the project. Although, being one of the deadliest diseases now, NCDS are less known and talked about. For us to fight them, we should create awareness and continue to share the knowledge on the diseases that is lacking.
Animated video two and three depicted the facts about NCDs, which may be unknown. Facts like 4 out of five NCD deaths occur in low and middle-income countries or the fact that NCDs affect people of all ages at any time. For people to understand the seriousness of the burden of the diseases and recognize its effects, it is necessary to know these details. They are also very helpful in an attempt to demystify the myths associated with NCDS.
Week four of January ended with a specific video explaining how to prevent NCDs. Prevention as well known is better than cure, this is accurate for NCDs as well. It is critical for everyone to understand how to prevent these diseases and their effects. We hope to continue to share the knowledge on NCDs and change lives.
