Raising Awareness About Coeliac Disease

Delivering Our Health Promotion Strategy

blank
For the next twelve months Coeliac NZ will focus on developing resources to ‘create supportive environments’ which is one of the five health promotion measures of success in the ‘Ottawa Charter’. This will see a continuation of activities to raise awareness and understanding of coeliac disease via our national Coeliac Awareness Week 2021 campaign and participation at food shows and conferences, including the Healthy Living and General Practice Conference and Medical Exhibition. We will also develop new resources for the website and support our volunteers to improve the quality of life for people living regionally throughout NZ.
Written in plain English, we will produce a range of pdf resources that can be downloaded from the website to help navigate the journey of living with the disease at early childhood education and schools; in workplaces; at marae, clubs, and faith-based organisations; when talking to health professionals.
Toolkit for schools
The first piece of work is the development of our 'Living Coeliac Safe Toolkit for Schools'.
