17 Sustainable Development Goals
Legal authorities and organizations such as the WHO, the Directorate of Health and the UN’s “17 sustainable goals” all target warning signals.
- Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980.
- In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these over 600 million were obese.
- 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight in 2014, and 13% were obese.
- Most of the world’s population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight.
- 41 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2014.
- Obesity is preventable.
- Doctors around the world are general practitioners without the physical or technical feasibility to stay updated on knowledge regarding health-specifics in general.
- In addition; lack of time and technology seems to influence final results.
- This negatively affects consumers and our global health.
Our global vision is to “improve Global Health”.
Norway has an increase in overweight and obesity.
An increase from 5% in 1995 till near to 30% in 2017.
Nevertheless, Norway is voted the world’s best and happiest country.
Despite this, we see that we are sadly heading towards the wrong direction regarding mental and physical health. We need to change and improve health.
It is quite natural to look to Norway as a good country to live in. We are, by many people, seen as “the role model” for our way of living. We have all resources needed to become good role model for better health and quality in life.
It is therefore natural to invite authorities to state a National vision; “Improve Life and Health”.
Imagine by 2020 we can look back on_
- 10% obesity and overweight.
- We have improved key health indicators driven by a National motivational effort inspiring people in all walks of life; young and old, rich and poor, native and immigrants, employed and unemployed, fit people and not so fit people.
- Social media talks about Norwegians in collaboration and inspiration, together defined our new ways of improving quality in life and health.
- Cost and pricing of healthy foods were key considerations in the prevention of obesity.
- Establishing good and healthy eating habits by offering free lunch in kindergarten, schools and work as well as.
- Establishing a Physical Activity Culture; free bikes and cycles for every employee and tax reduction for using the bike back and forth to work. The Cycle to Work Scheme is a tax incentive scheme which aims to encourage employees to cycle to and from work. Under the scheme employers can pay for bicycles and bicycle equipment for their employees and the employee pays back through a salary sacrifice arrangement of up to 12 months.
Key success factors:
- Changing bad habits to become good habits.
- To improve quality in life and health, people need knowledge about health and what drives the important “why´s”. If they don`t get into the why`s on a deeper level, soon motivation and eating and living habit will be challenged.
- It`s about improving diagnosis and prescribed treatments through smarter and faster data-inputs from AI (Artificial Intelligence) digital advisors and trainers.
- It`s about securing motivation, follow-ups and positive feedback.
- It`s about establishing a clear vision on an individual and a National level.
We have established and implemented our success formula to improve health and life.
Once Norway has taken the lead; we will look Internationally and invite and encourage all other countries to join a shared vision for the world; “Improve Global Health”.
Legal authorities and organizations such as the WHO, the Directorate of Health and the UN’s “17 sustainable goals” are all encouraging and stand by the Worlds Vision.
National key performance health indicators are through Scorecards and Dashboards are defined, established, measured and followed up.
Leading technologies through Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, VR, AR are all making it faster, stronger and better ways to improve life and health quality.
