Sensibilisation des médias et du grand public

L’accès du public à de l’information fiable sur les bonnes pratiques alimentaires et sur l’importance de la pratique régulière de l’activité physique est une condition sine qua non à l’adoption des comportements favorables au maintien de la bonne santé. Le Pôle DFN déploie en ce sens des stratégies de diffusion de l’information originales et orientées vers la prévention et la promotion de la santé. Parmi ces stratégies, soulignons notamment :

      • La tenue récurrente, à Cotonou comme à Ouagadougou, des Journées de la nutrition
      • La production et la diffusion de reportages dans les médias écrits et électroniques
      • La tenue d’ateliers ciblés à l’intention de journalistes scientifiques
      • Le soutien aux groupes d’entraide pour la prévention des maladies chroniques liées à la nutrition
      • La production et la diffusion d’outils adaptés au contexte local (Guide alimentaire du Bénin)

Diffusion des résultats du Pôle DFN auprès de la communauté scientifique

Les résultats de recherche et de stages menés dans le cadre du Pôle DFN font l’objet, autant que possible, de communications scientifiques lors de cours, séminaires, colloques régionaux et autres congrès internationaux. Ainsi, l’expérience du Pôle DFN et les résultats de ses recherches ont-ils déjà pu être partagés avec de nombreux auditoires, tant en Afrique et au Canada qu’à l’étranger. Parmi les tribunes où le Pôle DFN a pu se prononcer, citons notamment :

Publications dans le cadre du Projet DFN et des travaux de recherche conjoints avec le Bénin depuis 2008
