Nada India Youth Catalyst Speaks on Well being

Garden based nutrition education: An experimental approach for learning nutrition education.... Meet Nada India Youth Catalyst

I am a diligent development economics graduate passionate about building an egalitarian society which has provision to quality education and healthcare facilities for all those in need. My past work experience has exposed me to understand the intersectional nature of societies formed because of their unique socio-political-economic backgrounds. Thus while trying to understand the complex nature of societies, my interest area has ranged from ethnography, socio-political ideologies, women and child healthcare, gender roles to government policies and health insurance.  I came across the opportunity to connect with Nada India Foundation (NIF) while recently working on my research paper titled:  “Garden based nutrition education: An experimental approach for learning nutrition education to change adolescent’s eating preferences in India”. The motivation of the paper was to raise awareness on the rising incidence of non-communicable-diseases (NCDs) and develop an early intervention model that…

Youth have a right to health, but that is not adequately reflected in our societies and health systems. In fact, for cancer, diabetes, chronic lung disease, and cardiovascular diseases - so-called noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) - more than two-thirds of preventable adult deaths are associated with behavior that started in adolescence. Many young people are well aware of how drastically NCDs will affect their generation in the current system and have taken the challenge to change the discourse for a healthier global population. Yet, youth voices are often dismissed or tokenized in political conversations. This is despite the many examples of youth making positive change at all levels of society. This paper provides an overview of the challenges and emerging youth-driven actions to address NCDs at local, nation…

#UHCDAY Keep The Promise.... 70% of NCDs Adult deaths are linked to risk factors that starts in adolescence

“Seventy percent of the preventable adult deaths from NCDs are linked to risk factors that start in adolescence, providing a key opportunity for prevention.”What are NCDs?Cardiovascular disease (CVD) in children can be congenital or acquired. Globally, 13.9 million children are affected by CVD. Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is the most common chronic heart disease in children.
Cancer is a leading cause of death for children and adolescents worldwide. Existing data suggests close to 6 million children had cancer in 2017. This may be an underestimate as many countries do not have adequate surveillance systems for childhood cancer.
Chronic respiratory disorders (CRDs), including asthma, respiratory allergies and lung diseases, are a major source of disability in children. More than 108 million children in 2017 were affected by CRDs. Children with CRD often experience high rates of hospitalization.
Diabetes is a condition where the body cannot adequately manage blood glucose or insulin and a…
