World Health Day on 7th April 2017

The theme of our 2017 World Health Day campaign was “Depression”. This was the first year that WHO had chosen a MH disorder as its theme to raise awareness around the world. The campaign slogan was “Depression: Let’s Talk”. In collaboration with the Health Protection Agency, SHE, MRC and many other organisations, we began our ‘Let’s Talk’ campaign throughout the Maldives. As part of this campaign, we made badges, t-shirts and also posters and leaflets giving people information on where they could seek help. During the week of 7th April 2017, our volunteers and members were on TV and radio raising awareness about depression.
