The Circular Economy for Healthy Lifestyles (CEHL) project is improving the wellbeing of communities in Fiji. The project has three key focuses:
1. Communities participate in activities to prevent non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes. They have access to tracking tools and have connections to public services at each division.
2. Participants have improved skills and knowledge in dietary diversification, traditional food preservation techniques, organic farming, and composting as part of a circular economy for a healthy lifestyle.
3. Communities have increased healthy lifestyle awareness through adapted intervention systems and well-planned media and communications messages.
Project Team will be led by the current LMA Project who are former government nutritionists with strong footprints at the national and community health development and response work in Fiji.
