At last!  Here is the stakeholder report from our “Call to NCDs Action” meeting in February.

It outlines SA NCDs Plan and targets for 2020, our stakeholder network, SWOT analysis and a short-term multisector action plan.

SA NCDs Stakeholders Meeting Report 16June 2014 final

The 16th June is our own special holiday to commemorate the Student Uprising in 1976 – Youth Day. We offer this report as a tiny part of the legacy for the youth of South Africa.

Remember how we all dressed in red to support heart health for women and children?  That and the CANSA bandannas helped us to bond.

Now we all know that red is the colour of one of our top trade unions. Since then we have had the elections. The scenes from the swearing parliamentarians dressed in the very red of the new party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

At a NCDs presentation I made there was uproarious laughter at the picture of us all dressed in red. I was a bit miffed, a complete failure of humour, not understanding what the audience was laughing at. Now I do… I was so engrossed in the NCDs Freedom Fighters that it was my colour. Long live NCDs Freedom Fighters. Long live.
