Dancing in the Rain: Living With NCDs is an optimistic book about preventing and living with noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), those burgeoning global illnesses that affect millions of people each year such as cancers, chronic respiratory diseases, mental illnesses, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes. In our modern world with unprecedented access to high energy foods and sedentary lifestyles, the medical, social, economic and environmental issues associated with these conditions deeply concern our public health leaders, in the rich and poor countries.
Dancing in the Rain highlights that living with NCDs is like dancing in falling rain; you get wet but life can still be a lot of fun. The second part of the book features writing by young people; winners of the Future Leaders writing awards.
Proof of Birth. Australia has not yet achieved universal birth registration, which means that many people without a birth certificate struggle to enjoy the benefits of citizenship. In particular, people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, rural and remote communities and culturally and linguistically diverse communities, are over-represented in the number of unregistered births. Without a birth certificate these individuals are unable to realise many of their basic human rights. This book draws together the work of a range of experts from diverse fields who present recent developments and strategies designed to overcome the barriers to accessing the birth registration systems. It provides recommendations to help communities, governments and civil society work together to ensure ALL Australians are able to obtain a birth certificate to enable them to fully participate in Australian life.
