We can prevent and control noncommunicable diseases, like cancer and diabetes.

How can we cut the number of deaths, especially those occurring before the age of 60, from cancer, diabetes, respiratory and other noncommunicable diseases?

Share your ideas!

Lindiwe Khumalo has brought her 18-month old son Sibusiso to the clinic for their scheduled vaccinations. “My other child, who is six, is due to get more tetanus and diphtheria vaccinations soon. It is easy to remember because the date the children need to be brought back is written in the booklet,” says Lindiwe, clutching a blue vaccination booklet. Her children’s routine vaccination appointments and those of millions worldwide stem from moves by WHO in 1974 to launch the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI).

"Drink one litre of water every morning before you begin fasting."
"Do not overeat and watch out for foods high in sugar such as dates."
"Ask your doctor to adapt the dose and timing of your diabetes medication before you fast."

Throughout the month of Ramadan, Mariama and other people in #Senegal will receive text messages like the ones above on her mobile phone via mDiabetes. They aim to guide her through the month of fasting, which can be particularly challenging for people with #diabetes.

It's World Blood Donor Day! #GiveBlood because your blood can save mothers http://goo.gl/cYIViN
Thousands of volunteers have turned up at a centre in Colombo, #SriLanka to donate blood in what is being claimed as South Asia’s largest blood drive.
“Since 2005, Sri Lanka has almost halved its maternal mortality rate to approximately 29 deaths per 100,000 live births,” says Dr Firdosi Mehta, WHO’s Representative in Sri Lanka. “This rate, one of the lowest in WHO’s South-East Asia Region, reflects the country’s quality maternal health services, including improved access to safe blood supplies for women giving birth.”
