Infographics

We combine public health knowledge with graphic design to communicate the latest news and information relating to NCDs and Global Health. Working with a range of local and international emerging designers, we commissioned a number of pieces during 2016 which can be found below.


World Cancer Day

Feburary, 2016

Cancer cases are expected to rise from 14 million to 22 million per year by 2035, with the greatest burden occurring in Africa, Asia and Central and South America. However this is not a challenge of tomorrow. This is a Global Health challenge of today.

We can reverse the fact that 1 in 3 cancer cases are attributable to behavioral and dietary risk factors such as overweight and obesity, tobacco and alcohol intake, low fruit and vegetable consumption, and lack of physical activity.

We can address late diagnosis, lack of healthcare access and spiraling costs, sedentary lifestyles and industries profiting from this disease.

The World Health Organization have set the challenge of reducing premature cancer mortality by 25% by 2025. This target can be achieved. We know the solutions.

Through refocusing our healthcare, investing in treatment, implementing public health strategies, coordinating research, and monitoring the overall burden, we can achieve this goal together. We Can. I Can.

World Health Day

March, 2016

World Health Day (WHD) takes place on 7 April each year. Diabetes is the focus this year, with the aim to raise awareness and gather support for prevention and action.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is focused on scaling up prevention for type 2 and gestational diabetes, strengthening care and enhancing surveillance.

As part of this, the first ever Global Report on Diabetes has been launched in Geneva today.

This WHO Global Report details the scale of the diabetes epidemic globally and includes individual country profiles with information on the number of people living with diabetes and their available services.

Spread the word! Tweet, share and post our extended Diabetes Infographic on social media with the hashtags: #WHD2016 #diabetes #BeatNCDs and you’ll be helping to raise awareness of the causes and consequences of this NCD.

Australian Bureau of Statistics

May, 2016

We were inspired to create this infographic following the release of the Australian Bureau of Statistics data revealing that Australians are consuming too much #sugar – with most coming from junk foods & soft drinks.

One in two Australians (52 per cent) usually exceed the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) recommendation that free sugars contribute to less than 10 per cent of total energy intake, according to new Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data.

Director of Health, Louise Gates, said the new ABS report showed the average amount of free sugars consumed was 60 grams per day (equivalent to 14 level teaspoons of white sugar).

Free sugars include the added sugars from food and beverage processing and preparation as well as honey and the sugar naturally present in fruit juice.


Global Nutrition Report

June, 2016

To coincide with the latest release of the Global Nutrition Report, we were delighted to work alongside the executive team to deliver a series of infographics communicating the report’s key findings.

The 2016 report was titled From Promise To Impact – Ending Malnutrition by 2030 and the infographics translated into four languages (French, English, Spanish and Portuguese). You can view and download the infographics here.
