BBC features YHP in mini-documentary series “Turning the Tide on NCDs”

We are proud to be part of the new BBC Storyworks documentary series “Turning the Tide on NCDs”, which has been developed with the NCD Alliance to raise awareness of non-communicable diseases.

Three films have been created with the help of our partners One Young World and Plan International UK. The stories are mainly told by the inspiring peer-educators from our Young Health Programme, and are set in London at the One Young World Summit last year and in the programmes that we work with them on in India and Indonesia. The films are:

London – ‘A new generation of health influencers’, focusing on NCDs and youth

India – ‘Starting early for long healthy lives’, focusing on community mobilisation

Indonesia – ‘Stubbing it out’, focusing on tobacco control

The Young Health Programme is now in its tenth successful year and our peer-educators have already reached more than four million young people with their health promotion and education activities.
