Members in action is an initiative of IF involving its members in different projects that aim to raise awareness and animate the public policy debate about issues and challenges related to Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. The concept of this initiative is to create a proactive and participative collaboration between IF and its members in disseminating information at national level and using IF publications and communication tools to that end.
Members in action to prevent NTDs in Europe
In collaboration with its members, IF is conducting a project aiming at raising awareness about the prevention of Neural Tube Defects in Europe. The project consists of translating the prevention postcards that were produced in English for a campaign on prevention of NTDs in Europe. Member associations took the initiative to translate the content of the postcard and IF provides assistance in designing and incorporating the content into the postcards. Up to now we have members from Croatia and Estonia who have translated the postcards and used them in national campaigns.
Upon request from the Estonian association we have collaborated the translation of the postcards into Italian, Portuguese and Spanish for a national campaign that targets tourists as well.
We look forward to further collaboration from other member associations to translate the postcards and use them as an awareness tool in their respective countries.
