Public health helps guard communities against preventable diseases, controls disease outbreaks, and promotes healthier lifestyles. But public health can’t stand alone, communication plays an important role in keeping your community healthy. Accurately reporting on health issues is critical because rumors and inaccurate information have devastating consequences that can harm not only individuals but communities and whole countries.

YALICares is designed to increase awareness and literacy on health matters and encourage you to serve as community health advocates. You play a vital role in promoting public health and as a network you can work together for a healthier Africa.
