Share it in social networks

In the last years, social networks like Facebook or MySpace have a steadily grown amount of attention. Either media you choose, keywords like “Web 2.0”, “social network” or “social media” are common today. Probably you are already using at least one of those services.

To make it as easy as possible for you to share news about the World Health Alphabetization on social networks, we will (soon) provide useful buttons. Every person that passes the test and gives us your e-mail address during the registration process will bring you closer towards your WHA Health education diploma.

Share it in everyday life

You not only live in the internet. All of us have an “offline” live, where there is a great need for a World Health Alphabetization, too. Below, you will find a few examples of how you can get active in everyday life. If you have another great idea, tell us about it and help others with it!

Talk about it!

Just think about it: You are in school and talk with your friends about your lives and your future. There are few things more exciting than sharing some of the information you learned during this course. Imagine how much fun it will be to work through this course together with your friends, complete the test together and think about whom else you could invite to join.

And once you have gathered friends who want to work in your school or your community to spread this message you could have regular meetings to talk about how to bring this health information to your community, e.g, by presentations, talks, exhibitions and in many other ways.

If you are beyond the school age, you may want to invite friends or colleagues over to your house and work through this course by discussing the health information on the slides and jointly working towards a diploma as Health Educator.

There are many casual ways to spread this information. One of them could be like this: Imagine you are at your favorite grocery store or supermarket, buying fresh fruits for your healthy meals. Why not tell other customers about the power of vitamins and minerals and the effect on their body? Every day, you will come in situations, where you interact with other people. Aren't these people having a right to know about the functions of their bodies? It is easy to give them access to basic information about their health. Just tell them about this website: www.WHA-www.org is easy to remember.

Eat healthy food! Climb the stairs instead of using the elevator!
