“Our goal must be a world in which good health is a pillar of individual well-being, national progress, and international stability and peace. This cannot be achieved without partnerships involving governments, international organizations, the business community, and civil society.”

— Kofi A. Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations

The Pan American Health and Education Foundation is an integral partner of the Let's eat healthy, live well, and get moving America! strategic communication campaign of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). Specifically, PAHEF is advocating for healthy lifestyles to our stakeholders across the Americas.

PAHO and PAHEF are joining forces to tackle the current epidemics of obesity and chronic diseases that are indiscriminately affecting youth as well as adults — diseases that are stealing years and quality of life from millions of people. Moreover, these diseases are preventable, many simply through proper diet, nutrition, and physical exercise.

As there is a strong corollary between evidence-based, scalable research that identifies factors related to healthy lifestyles and the success of a communication campaign that promotes healthy lifestyles, resources are needed. PAHEF is committed to supporting the campaign by focusing on operations research specific to the campaign. We are proud to provide you an opportunity to join our efforts by donating to the campaign’s operations research activities.
