Turning the tide
In 2020 GDAR collaborated up with NCD Alliance and BBC StoryWorks as part of Turning the Tide, a series of short films about the bold actions being carried out by communities and organisations to take on NCDs. The stories are about the small and significant changes being made for better, healthier lives.
The GDAR film shines the spotlight on a citizen science study we conducted in partnership with young people and communities in Yaoundé, Cameroon. The study seeks to understand more about how neighbourhoods and daily routines affect health.
