This Campaign with Free Diabetes Mellitus Screening with Diabetes involved for this World Health Day' s 2017 theme which is 'Depression: Let's Talk' basing of the previous World Health Day' s 2016 theme which was ' Diabetes' .

The WHO focused World Health Day 2016, on diabetes – a largely preventable and treatable non-communicable disease that is rapidly increasing in numbers in many countries, most dramatically in low- and middle-income countries. Simple lifestyle measures have been shown to be effective in preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes, including maintaining normal body weight, engaging in regular physical activity, and eating a healthy diet. Diabetes can be controlled and managed to prevent complications through diagnosis, self-management education, and affordable treatment.
The WHO estimates about 422 million people in the world have diabetes, with the disease the direct cause of some 1.5 million deaths. The goals of WHD 2016 are (1) scale up prevention, (2) strengthen care, and (3) enhance surveillance.

World Health Day 2017, celebrated on 7 April, aimed to mobilize action on depression. This condition affects people of all ages, from all walks of life, in all countries. It impacts on people’s ability to carry out everyday tasks, with consequences for families, friends, and even communities, workplaces, and health care systems. At worst, depression can lead to self-inflicted injury and suicide. A better understanding of depression – which can be prevented and treated – will help reduce the stigma associated with the illness, and lead to more people seeking help.

Therefore, African Union Students' Council (AUSC) President's Office has decided to invite more Rwandan based Non-governmental Organizations that are allowed to conduct health related events supported by their constitutions specified in their objectives, missions and visions to relate the current World Health Day 2017 Theme"Depression" with the Theme"Diabetes" of the previous World Health Day 2016  involving centers of mental health disabled people and non mental health disabled out patients consultations from different health care facilities around the Kigali City where this combination will help to assess both people living with depression and those living with diabetes will be able to talk about links between diabetes and depression making our efforts to raise awareness on both serious conditions and how possible it is to prevent , treat and control both Depression and Diabetes during the conference day on Sunday May 21st, 2017, From 14h00’ to 16:30’ Kigali Local Time at Kigali Hilltop Hotel & Country Club .

Pre-Introduction

World Health Day - 7 April 2017

The World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as other related organisations.

In 1948, the WHO held the First World Health Assembly. The Assembly decided to celebrate 7 April of each year, with effect from 1950, as the World Health Day. The World Health Day is held to mark WHO's founding, and is seen as an opportunity by the organization to draw worldwide attention to a subject of major importance to global health each year.
The WHO organizes international, regional and local events on the Day related to a particular theme. World Health Day is acknowledged by various governments and non-governmental organizations with interests in public health issues, who also organize activities and highlight their support in media reports, such as the Global Health Council.

World Health Day is one of eight official global health campaigns marked by WHO, along with World Tuberculosis Day, World Immunization Week, World Malaria Day, World No Tobacco Day, World AIDS Day, World Blood Donor Day, and World Hepatitis Day.

World Health Day’s 2017 theme is ‘Depression: Let’s Talk’

The United Nations’ World Health Organisation celebrates World Health Awareness Day each year on April 7. This year, WHO’s year-long focus is on depression, that is touted to be one of the main reasons behind mental illnesses across the world.

This year’s theme Depression: Let’s Talk, aims to reach out and help people battling with the disorder. According to WHO’s latest estimates, between 2005-2015, there has been an 18 per cent increase in people dealing with depression, that is approximately 300 million people.

A lot of people around us, who probably come across as anti-social, withdrawn or aloof might not be socially awkward, unlike what you think. Chances are they might be dealing with issues that they cannot open up about because of the lack of support, taboo and stigma associated with depression.
Is There a Link Between Diabetes and Depression? Know the Facts

Is there a connection between depression and diabetes?
Key points

    Studies show that having diabetes doubles your risk of developing depression.
    It’s also possible that people with depression are more likely to develop diabetes.
    Untreated depression can make it more difficult to successfully manage your diabetes.
Some studies show that having diabetes doubles your risk of developing depression. If diabetes-related health problems emerge, your risk for depression can increase even further. It remains unclear exactly why this is. Some researchers suggest that this could be due to diabetes' metabolic effect on brain function as well as the toll day-to-day management can take.

It’s also possible that people with depression are more likely to develop diabetes. Because of this, it’s recommended that people who have a history of depression be screened for diabetes.

Keep reading for more on the connection between diabetes and depression, as well as information on diagnosis, treatment, and more.

What the research says

Although more research is needed to fully understand the link between diabetes and depression, it’s clear that there’s a connection.

It’s thought that alterations in brain chemistry tied to diabetes may be related to the development of depression. For example, damage resulting from diabetic neuropathy or blocked blood vessels in the brain may contribute to the development of depression in people with diabetes.

Conversely, changes in the brain due to depression may cause an increased risk for complications. Studies have shown that people with depression are at higher risk for diabetes complications, but is has been difficult to determine which causes which. It hasn’t been determined if depression increases the risk for complications, or vice versa.

Symptoms of depression can make it more difficult to successfully manage diabetes and prevent diabetes-related complications.

A 2011 study found that people who have type 2 diabetes and experience symptoms of depression often have higher blood sugar levels. Additionally, the results of a separate 2011 study suggest that people who have both conditions are 82 percent more likely to experience a heart attack.

Symptoms
Are the symptoms of depression different for people with diabetes?

Just trying to cope with and properly manage a chronic disease like diabetes can feel overwhelming for some. If you feel depressed and your sadness isn't relieved within a few weeks, you may be experiencing depression.

Common symptoms include:

    no longer finding pleasure in activities that you once enjoyed
    experiencing insomnia or sleeping too much
    loss of appetite or binge eating
    inability to concentrate
    feeling lethargic
    feeling anxious or nervous all the time
    feeling isolated and alone
    feeling sadness in the morning
    feeling that you "never do anything right"
    having suicidal thoughts
    harming yourself

Poor diabetes management can also prompt symptoms similar to those of depression. For example, if your blood sugar is too high or too low, you may experience increased feelings of anxiety, restlessness, or low energy. Low blood sugar levels can also cause you to feel shaky and sweaty, which are symptoms similar to anxiety.

If you’re experiencing symptoms of depression, you should consult your doctor. They can help you determine if depression is causing your symptoms and make a diagnosis, if needed. They can also work with you to develop a treatment plan that best suits your needs.

CONCEPT NOTE
I.    Introduction
On behalf of the African Union Students’ Council (AUSC) Executive Committee, the AUSC President’s Office wishes to introduce the World Health Day Celebration Campaign starting from Monday April 24th to Friday May 19th, 2017 involving the three Districts of the Kigali City on different Major Sites and its associated Conference aiming the celebration of the “WORLD HEALTH DAY” that will take place on Sunday May 21st, 2017, From 14h00’ to 16:30’ Kigali Local Time at Kigali Hilltop Hotel & Country Club.
World Health Day’s 2017 theme is ‘Depression: Let’s Talk’
Depression is commonly found as a co-morbid condition in chronic medical illnesses in general, and diabetes mellitus (DM) in particular. Depression in patients with DM represents a complex, co-morbid condition, which is the result of complicated interactions between bio-psycho-social and genetic factors.(repeated text) Depression originates as a direct consequence of neurochemical changes with DM, which harmfully affects health outcomes. The combination of diabetes and depression is associated with decrease in functional abilities and self-care.
 The World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as other related organisations.

However this Event was shifted from April 7th, 2017 and postponed following the activities of KWIBUKA 23 that was taking place in Rwanda from April 7th to April 13th , 2017 , and the event shifted for the AUSC celebration of the World Health Day at the 1st Time in Rwanda  is aiming to continue the African Union Students’ Council (AUSC)’s Awareness Rising For The 3rd Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) through Controlling Non-Communicable Diseases ( NCD) in the KIGALI CITY  with the main purpose to Promote a Diabetic Free Rwandan Population especially for those living or Visiting  the Kigali City by conducting a one whole Month Campaign for  Earlier Detection of Abnormal Blood Sugars by offering a free of charge screening for Abnormal Blood Sugar that can be incidentally diagnosed as Diabetes Mellitus at the late stage. 

In fact, any late diagnosed Diabetes Mellitus can have a poor prognosis and leading to temporally and permanent disabilities including Diabetic wounds and associated neuropathies and amputations of affected limbs; while the complications of the untreated Diabetes Mellitus manifest quickly into acute kidney injuries and Chronic  Kidney Diseases and kidneys failure .

The Article 2 mentioning the seat of AUSC as established at KABAGENDWA Village, KAMASHASHI cell, NYARUGUNGA Sector, KICUKIRO District, and KIGALI City. However, it can be transferred elsewhere in Rwanda on decision of the General Assembly.
The Article 3 mentioning the organization’s activities being exercised in the whole continent of Africa and Diaspora and which was created for an unlimited period.

SUMMARY 

Topic: AUSC Event CONCEPT NOTE for World Health Day Celebration Campaign with Free Diabetes Mellitus Screening in Kigali City
World Health Day’s 2017 theme is ‘Depression: Let’s Talk’

The campaign in Kigali City will be taking place from Monday April 24th to  Friday May  19th, 2017 involving the three Districts making the Kigali City on different Major Sites and its associated Conference aiming  the celebration of the “WORLD HEALTH DAY” Will take place on Sunday May 21st, 2017, From 14h00’ to 16:30’ Kigali Local Time at Kigali Hilltop Hotel & Country Club .
This Campaign with Free Diabetes Mellitus Screening with Diabetes involved for this World Health Day' s 2017 theme which is 'Depression: Let's Talk' basing of the previous World Health Day' s 2016 theme which was ' Diabetes' .

The WHO focused World Health Day 2016, on diabetes – a largely preventable and treatable non-communicable disease that is rapidly increasing in numbers in many countries, most dramatically in low- and middle-income countries. Simple lifestyle measures have been shown to be effective in preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes, including maintaining normal body weight, engaging in regular physical activity, and eating a healthy diet. Diabetes can be controlled and managed to prevent complications through diagnosis, self-management education, and affordable treatment.
The WHO estimates about 422 million people in the world have diabetes, with the disease the direct cause of some 1.5 million deaths. The goals of WHD 2016 are (1) scale up prevention, (2) strengthen care, and (3) enhance surveillance.

World Health Day 2017, celebrated on 7 April, aimed to mobilize action on depression. This condition affects people of all ages, from all walks of life, in all countries. It impacts on people’s ability to carry out everyday tasks, with consequences for families, friends, and even communities, workplaces, and health care systems. At worst, depression can lead to self-inflicted injury and suicide. A better understanding of depression – which can be prevented and treated – will help reduce the stigma associated with the illness, and lead to more people seeking help.

Therefore, African Union Students' Council (AUSC) President's Office has decided to invite more Rwandan based Non-governmental Organizations that are allowed to conduct health related events supported by their constitutions specified in their objectives, missions and visions to relate the current World Health Day 2017 Theme"Depression" with the Theme"Diabetes" of the previous World Health Day 2016  involving centers of mental health disabled people and non mental health disabled out patients consultations from different health care facilities around the Kigali City where this combination will help to assess both people living with depression and those living with diabetes will be able to talk about links between diabetes and depression making our efforts to raise awareness on both serious conditions and how possible it is to prevent , treat and control both Depression and Diabetes during the conference day on Sunday May 21st, 2017, From 14h00’ to 16:30’ Kigali Local Time at Kigali Hilltop Hotel & Country Club .
