For the third consecutive year, young people from different Pacific island states and territories have the opportunity to spread prevention and control messages for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) using different media, thanks to the Wake Up! Project, launched in 2017, with financial support from the Pacific Fund (France) and the Australian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), and implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC).

Have you ever seen these murals? If you are from Suva (Fiji), Nuku’alofa (Tonga), Port-Vila (Vanuatu) or Mata Utu (Wallis and Futuna), you might surely have noticed them.

The Pacific Youth have a message for you.

They want you to be concerned about the threats of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

The goal of the Wake up! project is to get younger generations involved in efforts to control non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by providing them with an opportunity to speak out on this topic through the media and the arts.

Following the project’s initial success in 2017, the Pacific Community (SPC), in partnership with the regional United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) office, decided to do it again in 2018.
