    #Rehabilitate 500 Drug/NCD affected families in #Delhi NCR  #DrugFreeIndia  #HealthForAll

    At the age of 17 years, Mahesh has given up his schooling to work as a salesman. Alcohol violence in the family is forcing a lot of children & women to join work force or suffer. We target to sensitize  500 women & children about the issue of substance use and NCDs & encourage them to continue their education and support. The harmful use of alcohol & drug brings significant social and economic losses to individuals and family at large. Globally, 155 million 15 to 19 year olds consume alcohol. Alcohol use in adolescents is associated with negative effects on the brain, gut and circulatory system as well as increasing sexual risk-taking behavior,  mental health disorders, and injuries and violence.Burden Report 2019 .Moreover, discrimination from society leads to isolation of families affected by alcohol /drug use violence .

    Nada India attended Our Views Our Voices Training workshop in Geneva, Switzerland.

    Achieving the national Non-Communicable Disease (NCDs) targets, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Universal Health Coverage (UHC) calls for the adoption of a ‘Whole-of-Society’ (WoS) approach. Meaningful involvement of key stakeholders and constituencies, including individuals, families and communities, civil society, academia, People Living With NCDs (PLWNCDs) and youth, in NCD prevention and control, is a key strategy for a WoS approach. Identifying common priorities and pathways for these stakeholders to work synergistically is essential to amplify exiting efforts, both at the national and sub-national levels.
