A SA Human Rights Commission report on access to health care services from 2007.
A 5-page summary report of social and behaviour change communications (SBCC) for NCDs in South Africa.
Date February 2021. Commissioned by the Better Health Project South Africa (BHPSA)
This report summarises two studies that were requested by the South African NDoH to strengthen its approach to social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) for the prevention of NCDs.
- Section A discusses an evidence-based and systematic approach to SBCC and provides the ideal components of a framework for an SBCC strategy. It also provides evidence that could be used to design an SBCC strategy for
NCDs in South Africa; and
- Section B uses the quality assurance tool in the above framework to analyse the strengths and weaknesses of one national campaign: National Nutrition and Obesity Week (NNOW, October 2020)
A 3-page summary repart of lessons learnt global multistakeholder and multisectoral approaches. The report draws on lessons from other countries to support the implementation of the draft South African NCDs NSP (May 2020). It is will a paradigm shift to make implementation.
Public Health England was asked by the NDoH to peer review the NCDs NSP draft 4 of 2020 in December 2020.
This request appears to have been made in terms of the agreement with the NDoH and the UK Foreign Office Better Health Project South Africa
These comments will be discussed with the NCDs NSP Technical Committee on 1 Feb 21 and PHE.
