The week of 16-19 May 2016 was an important week for girls and women throughout the world with the hosting Women Deliver's 4th Global Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was also a milestone for our Motherhood Projects which incorporate the Alliance for Maternal Health Equality (AMHE), Safe Motherhood Week (SMW) and the Pregnancy and Medicine Initiative (PMI).
100,000 people brought together with Break Dengue!
Our Break Dengue page on Facebook has now reached more than 100,000 likes – that’s amounts to a steady 1,000 new likes each day for over 100 days!
Social media is the ideal place for bringing people around the world together on the issues that are important to them. It allows you to take an issue-centric approach to addressing the most relevant challenges across the globe today.
With the Break Dengue page, we are seeing a link between people joining the page and the arrival of dengue season in their country. People are turning to social media to collaborate on issues when they are most relevant in their lives.
Quite simply, the Break Dengue project – and its fast-growing following – demonstrates how we can harness the power of social media to have a positive impact on as many people as possible on issues important to them, when they are important to them.
We want to keep the momentum going. Are you interested to join Break Dengue? Get in touch with us.
