The world’s health professions have launched an easy-to-use, practical guide to help individuals and their health professionals reduce the risk of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The WHPA Health Improvement Card consists of a health scorecard, with “how to” explanatory guides for individuals and health professionals.
The information obtained through the card can help individuals and health professionals develop interventions to address individuals’ risk factors and actively improve their health and well-being. They are shown how to:
avoid tobacco use and harmful alcohol consumption
undertake regular sufficient physical activity
achieve and maintain healthy weight
manage tension and stress
access preventive care and screening for preventable illness.
The IFPMA supports the WHPA NCD campaign.
