The third contest of initiatives aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles and preventing non-communicable diseases at the local level starts in the Hrodna and Minsk regions (except Minsk city).
The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Contest “Be Healthy!” is the part of the project “Preventing Non-communicable Diseases, Promoting Healthy Lifestyle and Support to Modernization of the Health System in Belarus” (BELMED) funded by the European Union and implemented by UNDP, WHO, UNICEF and UNFPA in partnership with the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus.
Since 2016, 16 winners of the first two contests have been implementing their initiatives in the Mahilioŭ, Viciebsk, Brest and Homiel regions.
After the implementation of the new initiatives the regions will have a new sport and entertainment complexes, work-out areas for children and adult, improved equipment in schools for health nutrition and other benefits.
About 90% of all deaths in the country are related to the NCDs. Non-communicable diseases entail thereby serious macroeconomic burden for the country. The BELMED project offers practical ideas for strengthening and preserving the health of the inhabitants of Belarus.
Do you have any other innovative ideas? We are waiting for your applications BEFORE JANUARY 31, 2018!
