Bogotá, Colombia (PRWEB) September 17, 2013

Today, the National Alliance for Hispanic Health (the Alliance) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) launched an effort to highlight and support innovation through community partnerships to improve health and well-being throughout the Americas.

The Alliance, the nation’s largest network of Hispanic health advocates; PAHO, the World Health Organization’s regional office for the Americas; and the Colombian Ministry of Health are hosting this first joint leadership meeting to share successful community-based practices for prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases throughout the Americas. The Buena Salud América meeting is supported in part by the Healthy Americas Foundation and the Medtronic Foundation.

During the two-day meeting being held in Bogotá, Colombia, health and civic leadership will share community-based models for reducing tobacco use, encouraging good nutrition, and making movement a part of daily life. In addition, community-based models on disease self-management will also be addressed. The meeting is being convened during Colombia’s Healthy Lifestyles Week, a national week-long celebration of health and well-being.

“It is extremely important to create opportunities for community organizations and the civil society to come together, they are key players in the identification of priorities for action and collaboration that will lead to a healthier Americas,” said Dr. Jane L. Delgado, President and CEO of the Alliance.

The meeting seeks to better understand the challenges and spark new collaborations throughout the Americas for the prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases. “By highlighting innovative approaches grounded in community-based solutions, working together we will achieve the goal of reducing the burden of cardiovascular diseases for a heart healthy Americas region,” said Dr. Pedro Ordú
