26 November - World Anti-Obesity Day

World Anti-Obesity Day (AOD) is observed in various parts of the world on November 26, with several healthcare organizations  in India and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries participating in it.

In 2001, the Indian Wellness brand VLCC, founded by Mrs. Vandana Luthra, took the first step towards creating the celebration of the day to create awareness about  ill-effects of Obesity and ways to prevent it or reduce the overweight through weight reduction programmes.



Stand Up at least Three Hours a Day

Stand Up India, is a public awareness campaign that seeks to make people aware of the dangers of prolonged sitting, urging them to be more active. People who sit for 6-7 hours every day are at an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and shorter life spans as well as becoming overweight.  A report published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in January 2015 finds that long hours of sitting increases an individuals risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. Standing for at least one-fourth of the day decreases this risk, observes a research by the American Cancer Society in collaboration with The Cooper Institute, the University of Texas and the University of Georgia. Standing for an hour can help burn approximately 50 extra kilo calories. So by standing for two hours a day (extra 100 calories burn) for a year one can lose more than 36,500 calories (that is walking at least 15 to 186 marathons), or nearly five kgs.

Vandana Luthra made the appeal: "I urge you to stand up for your health. Log on to and take the Orange Pledge if you agree to stand up against obesity.

Creative Way to Stand Up and Work

The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty - 17 October

The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty has been observed every year since 1993, when the United Nations General Assembly, by resolution 47/196, designated this day to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries. Poverty eradication remains at the core of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the development of the new Sustainable Development Goals.


This year marks the 25th anniversary of the declaration by the General Assembly, in its resolution 47/196 of 22 December 1992, of 17 October as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the Call to Action by Father Joseph Wresinski — which inspired the observance of October 17 as the World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty — and the recognition by the United Nations of the day as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

2017 theme — Answering the Call of October 17 to end poverty: A path toward peaceful and inclusive societies

The Call to Action recognizes the need for building an alliance with citizens from all backgrounds to end poverty.

Build an alliance with citizens from all backgrounds to end poverty.

2015 Theme:
Building a sustainable future: Coming together to end poverty and discrimination

The 2015 observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is a special one, as it comes on the heels of the adoption of Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Agenda, which succeeds the Millennium Development Goals, contains 17 new and ambitious goals – foremost among them, to “end poverty in all its forms everywhere".

Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
1.1 By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day

1.2 By 2030, reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national definitions
1.3 Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable
1.4 By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance
1.5 By 2030, build the resilience of the poor and those in vulnerable situations and reduce their exposure and vulnerability to climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters
1.a Ensure significant mobilization of resources from a variety of sources, including through enhanced development cooperation, in order to provide adequate and predictable means for developing countries, in particular least developed countries, to implement programmes and policies to end poverty in all its dimensions
1.b Create sound policy frameworks at the national, regional and international levels, based on pro-poor and gender-sensitive development strategies, to support accelerated investment in poverty eradication actions
