Awareness days seem to be on the rise, whether in form of clothing badges, printed on fashion garments and accessories, or as pins on our clothes.
People want to help, they simply want to do good, and nothing addresses health problems more than focusing on powerful awareness campaigns. Conditions like cancer, brain injury, or heart disease, where lifestyle is a big risk factor, are shown the support from people who care about a certain cause or organization.
Many would say that it was the people’s choices that determined their health issues, and if they are suffering from a disease, they either decided to make bad choices in life, or they were unlucky with the gene-pool set up they have been given. The idea behind awareness days seem to be reinforcing that if you’re aware of the health issue, it’s a good step, and it might be even sufficient to address the health issue.
Awareness is the first step toward changing behavior. The information about the prevalence of a condition and its risk factors, as well as the knowledge of policies that impact a population's health can help spreading the word at a local level first, and later to a broader mass, while supporting people living with the condition at the same time.
