Congratulations to the schools that won Health in Action Awards last week in Port Elizabeth, South Africa!
Did you know that global deaths due to chronic lifestyle diseases – such as diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity – are expected to increase by 70% by 2030? WHO predicts that Africa will bear much of the burden. Our school-based Health in Action program with the Mondelēz International Foundation is working hard to prevent future lifestyle diseases with nutrition and healthy lifestyle education, access to fresh produce and regular exercise. The students in this video are proving the power of prevention to save lives.
