Renevlyn Development Initiative

Public Health

RDI believes only a healthy populace can advocate other basics of life such as shelter, education and food. Our advocacy centers on preventing the hazards that cause ill health, stopping the spread of diseases and working with public health groups and institutions for the improvement of our quality of life and life expectancy.

Our work cuts across different spheres that affect public health. They include advocacy against tobacco use and addiction and holding tobacco corporations accountable for the disease burden on citizens and the national economy. We also  advocate for the consumption of healthy foods to counter unwholesome products promoted by corporations in violation of citizen’s right to what they grow and consume.

We also subscribe to citizen’s unfettered right to their water resources in view of the centrality of water to wellness.
