HONG KONG, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Weez Walk 2024 ("Weez Walk"), organised by Weez Project and KELY Support Group (collectively "the organisers") and sponsored by FWD Hong Kong ("FWD"), was recently concluded with remarkable success. The event attracted over 820 participants, united in their commitment to supporting youth mental health. Participants joined hands, showing solidarity and support, as they came together to raise awareness and funds for the cause. As the event's platinum sponsor, FWD fully embraced the fundraising event and rallied its staff teams to take part, raising over HKD110,000. All net proceeds were donated to KELY Support Group's youth mental health programmes and services, demonstrating FWD's core value of caring for the community.

FWD successfully held the FWD x Weez Walk 2024 kick-off ceremony, with enthusiastic FWD teams gathered to promote awareness of youth mental health. (From left to right: Ms Godi Li, Acting Executive Director of KELY Support Group, Mr Tony Bruno, Co-founder of Weez Project and Board Member of KELY Support Group, Paul Tse, Chief Marketing and Digital Officer of FWD Hong Kong and Macau, Mr Andy Leung, prominent local singer) Paul Tse, Chief Marketing and Digital Officer of FWD Hong Kong and Macau, said, "FWD, as the platinum sponsor of Weez Walk this year, is delighted at our colleagues' enthusiasm and support for this event. FWD Group's international mental health survey1 conducted earlier revealed that nearly 80% of people in Hong Kong have or know someone who has experienced mental health challenges. Yet, many of them may not actively seek professional help due to a lack of understanding of one's own situation. Sharing a common goal, FWD supports the organisers and strives to prioritise youth mental health, raise awareness, and ensure appropriate support for mental wellbeing. FWD has consistently incorporated mental health protection elements into different products and services2 , encouraging the public to proactively care for their mental health." FWD successfully completed the FWD x Weez Walk kick-off ceremony early this year with 18 FWD teams, about 70 participants, joining. The ceremony was attended by Tony Bruno, Co-founder of Weez Project and the Board Member of KELY Support Group, Godi Li, Acting Executive Director of KELY Support Group, and Andy Leung, a prominent local singer and FWD's special guest. Accompanied by Paul Tse, they shared valuable insights about Weez Walk, emphasised the importance of supporting youth mental health, and provided tips on how to stay physically and mentally healthy. They led stretching exercises to prepare for the 60-km coastal walk. Tony Bruno, Co-founder of Weez Project and Board Member of KELY Support Group, said, "We are grateful for the support of FWD, who encouraged everyone to be more aware of the mental health of those around us, especially youth. The unity and enthusiasm demonstrated by the FWD teams were truly inspiring! Through this event, we hope participants can find joy in running while building a supportive culture within the community." "Proper stress relief is an essential part of maintaining physical and mental wellbeing," said Andy Leung. "Adults can take an extra step to understand and support young people in various ways. For instance, I have shared music with them to provide encouragement and positivity, and having participated in cross country running and marathons lately, I felt much more energised and accomplished when overcoming challenging moments." The Weez Walk 2024 had successfully concluded.  Participants in the Weez Walk 2024 can choose to complete the 60-km coastal trail around Hong Kong Island in-one-go or by stages sections, individually or in groups, while enjoying the beautiful sceneries along the way. The event also features stage challenges to promote mental health conversations and mutual support. Celebrate living through other Community Care initiatives promoting mental health awareness FWD senior management and colleagues joined “Walk For A Vision 2024” organised by HKSH Village Volunteers to raise funds for underprivileged children with emotional problems. FWD made continuous efforts to enhance the provision of mental health resources in Hong Kong. In addition to mental health protection plans2, FWD also has established partnerships with various charitable organisations. Following the recent "Here we are for your Family's Health" seminars, co-organised with Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital (HKSH), FWD continues our commitment by sponsoring and participating in the "Walk For A Vision" fundraising event organised by HKSH Village Volunteers. This event aims to sponsor underprivileged children for emotional health programme. FWD senior management took lead in the charity walk and was awarded as the team with highest participation.

National University of Singapore's IES, The Rockefeller Foundation Advance Renewable Energy Connectivity in Southeast Asia

~ Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy's Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) launches new fellowship and policy dialogues designed to accelerate the region's energy transition.~ The Rockefeller Foundation's 2-year, US$275,000 grant to IES supports boosting regional capacity to enhance energy flows across countries. SINGAPORE, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The National University of Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy's Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) and The Rockefeller Foundation announced a new collaboration to accelerate the Southeast Asia's energy transition efforts. With a US$275,000 (SG$370,000) grant from The Rockefeller Foundation, IES will launch a new climate policy fellowship while leading a series of dialogues over the next two years with national and regional leadership designed to enhance regional energy connectivity in Southeast Asia. By strengthening capacity to deliver renewable energy from one country to neighboring countries' high-demand areas, this collaboration will not only improve regional energy flows, but also support countries' energy transition and development goals.  Left to Right: Dr. Benjamin Cashore and Prof. Kanti Prasad Bajpai from National University of Singapore; Elizabeth Yee, Deepali Khanna and Eric Arndt from The Rockefeller Foundation Professor Benjamin W. Cashore, Director of IES, said: "It is our immense pleasure to be associated with The Rockefeller Foundation to facilitate regional energy connectivity dialogue in Southeast Asia. This grant will enable our institute to build our analytic, managerial, and technical capacity needed to identify innovative policy mixes for effective and lasting climate policy pathways, crucial for closing the observed gaps between national climate commitments and the policies and legislation to achieve them. We hope to support the efforts of climate policymakers through our research and dialogue." The Rockefeller Foundation's grant provides IES with resources to create a new fellowship to convene ministerial and high-level experts, scholars, and practitioners. In line with IES' mission to develop effective climate and sustainability policy analysis for the region while bridging the gap between available policy tools and expected impacts, the dialogues aim to accelerate regional energy connectivity by enhancing capacity to develop and integrate more effective policies. These convenings will focus on a range of technical issues, including shortening the implementation cycles for cross-border energy trade and ensuring durable energy connectivity through equitable energy partnerships.   Announcing this collaboration, Deepali Khanna, Vice President, Asia Regional Office, The Rockefeller Foundation said: "Policy action to accelerate green transitions will only be successful and equitable if it reflects viewpoints, debates and narratives from the Global South and Southeast Asia. Through this collaboration with IES, we hope to amplify those voices. The Rockefeller Foundation has always believed in creating equal opportunity for all and with our new 5-year climate strategy, this grant facilitating policy design dialogue is a positive step in the right direction. IES is a wonderful ally to further the importance of collective stakeholder action towards climate change. This grant will serve as a platform for an increasing number of sustainable academia, policy think-tanks and industry collaborations in the future." By promoting evidence-based dialogue towards collective climate action, this two-year grant supports the growing interest in climate policy discourse by, and for, the Global South. It also aligns with The Rockefeller Foundation's five-year, billion-dollar climate strategy, announced last September to advance the global climate transition and help ensure everyone can participate in it.

World Hemophilia Day 2024"Equitable access for all: recognizing all bleeding disorders"

MONTREAL, April 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 17, 2024, the global bleeding disorders community will come together to celebrate World Hemophilia Day. The theme of the event this year is "Equitable access for all: recognizing all bleeding disorders". The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) vision of Treatment for All is for a world where all people with inherited bleeding disorders have access to care, regardless of their type of bleeding disorder, gender, age, or where they live. This April, let's celebrate our community and continue working towards a world where everyone—with hemophilia A or B, von Willebrand disease (VWD) or any other bleeding disorder—has access to diagnosis, treatment, and comprehensive care. "At one time, when one said, 'bleeding disorder', people heard 'male with hemophilia'. In the last few years, the world has started seeing that a bleeding disorder means much more. It's hemophilia A and B, von Willebrand disease (VWD), and other conditions. It's men, boys, women and girls. It's the parents and the friends who support the person with a bleeding disorder. In short, 'bleeding disorder' means community—a community that deserves recognition, and one that needs our support. Please join us on April 17 to show the world that you care about equitable access for all."—Cesar Garrido, WFH President There are many ways you can bring attention to hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders in your local and global community to raise awareness of the need for inclusion in national policy. Whether you are a person with a bleeding disorder, a national member organization (NMO), or a healthcare professional, here are just a few things you can do to get started: Contact your NMO to find out how you and other NMO members can work together on World Hemophilia Day Participate in the World Hemophilia Day Light it Up Red! campaign. Last year, thousands of people worldwide showed their support by lighting up over 150 landmarks red in cities across the world Advocate locally using WFH World Hemophilia Day materials—including our letter template—and educate elected officials and health ministers Support our global advocacy efforts and be a part of what we are building today for future generations by donating here Share your story about how your quality of life—or the quality of life of someone you know—has changed thanks to receiving home-based treatment or prophylactic treatment on wfh.org/whd Get social by posting about inherited bleeding disorders on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn using the #WorldHemophiliaDay, #WHD2024, and #LightItUpRed hashtags Download resources like posters and social media banners from wfh.org/whd to help build your World Hemophilia Day Campaign Organize a community event, webinar, forum, or town hall and invite elected officials to learn more about your work first-hand and to meet with the community Take action locally and use WFH World Hemophilia Day materials to send a letter to your local policymakers, set up meetings with elected officials and health ministers and engage with the local media Send pictures, comments, or questions to the WFH at communications@wfh.org To learn more about World Hemophilia Day, please visit wfh.org/world-hemophilia-day.

Hoffman-La Roche Ltd., GC Pharma, Grifols, Kedrion, LFB S.A, Novo Nordisk, Octapharma, Pfizer, Sanofi, Sobi, Spark Therapeutics, and Takeda. About bleeding disorders In people with bleeding disorders such as hemophilia A or B, or von Willebrand disease (VWD), the blood clotting process doesn't work properly, with the result that they can bleed for longer than normal, and some people may experience spontaneous bleeding into joints, muscles, or other parts of their bodies which can lead to developmental and permanent mobility issues. About the World Federation of Hemophilia The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving and sustaining care for people with inherited bleeding disorders around the world. We work in partnership with healthcare providers (HCPs), governments, and our global network of national member organizations (NMOs) in 147 countries. We provide our NMOs and healthcare providers with the knowledge and tools they need to identify, support and treat people living with bleeding disorders in their communities, while promoting global advocacy and collaboration to achieve our common goals. Our vision of Treatment for All is for a world where all people with inherited bleeding disorders have access to care, regardless of their type of bleeding disorder, gender, age, or where they live. Our mission is to improve and sustain care for people with inherited bleeding disorders around the world. To find out more about the WFH, please visit www.wfh.org.

— Gilead Awards US$4 Million Globally (Excluding the United States) Through the Gilead ALL4LIVER Grant — – World Hepatitis Alliance Supports Global Expansion of Gilead ALL4LIVER Grant by Joining Grant Review Committee – — Vietnamese Organizations Institute of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Vietnam Viral Hepatitis Alliance Receive the Grant to Launch Innovative Projects Addressing Viral Hepatitis in The Region – HANOI, Vietnam, April 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: GILD), announced a global distribution of US$4 million through its ALL4LIVER Grant ("Grant") to support community-backed innovative projects associated with hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV), and hepatitis D (HDV). An official announcement was made at a Gilead-hosted symposium titled "Partnering for Global Health Equity: Case Studies from Around the World," held during the World Hepatitis Summit ("Summit") in Lisbon.  Out of 71 organizations awarded the 2023 Grant, two non-profit organizations from Vietnam have been honored: Institute of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Vietnam Viral Hepatitis Alliance. The two recipients are selected by an independent external review panel of global experts, including the World Hepatitis Alliance ("WHA"). This collaboration extends WHA's longstanding partnership with Gilead to further the Grant's ambition of supporting community-led efforts and catalyzing viral hepatitis elimination efforts.  Recent estimation by the Vietnamese Ministry of Health, Centre for Disease Analysis and the World Health Organization reported that one out of 11 people in Vietnam live with a chronic infection of HBV or HCV.[1] More than 70% of persons living with hepatitis B do not know their infection status in Vietnam and more than 95% of diagnosed HBV cases are untreated in Vietnam.[2] Despite the availability of affordable strategies for HBV management and prevention of disease progression, barriers to implementation of effective screening and diagnostic programs remain a challenge. The data demonstrates that to achieve viral hepatitis elimination in the region, addressing the unmet needs associated with viral hepatitis is crucial. The grant funding will empower the two organizations to launch innovative projects aimed at creating awareness, driving testing, improving linkage to care, and elevating viral hepatitis on the public health agenda. Vietnam Viral Hepatitis Alliance, a not-for-profit organization, will utilize the funding to initiate the DETECT-B program. The initiative aims to implement an evidence-based and scalable intervention to promote HBV testing, linkage to care and treatment in primary care settings and will be piloted in Ho Chi Minh City. The other grantee, Institute of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, plans to address the lack of a digital platform for accurate and reliable information which is readily accessible by the public and HBV patients. They will develop an HBV care app, in partnership with Vietnamese liver health experts to better support linkage to care and adherence to care. Features include providing educational package with accessible information on patient lab tests, prescription, and appropriate dosage, tracking key health indicators and offering tailored recommendations and enabling direct communication with physicians to improve health behaviors based on an individual's health indicators input. "The Institute of Gastroenterology and Hepatology is honored to be a recipient of the ALL4LIVER Grant from Gilead Sciences. We believe that by enhancing the early detection and proactive management of HBV, we can improve the awareness and thus the treatment environment of people living with viral hepatitis. We are confident that with the support of this funding, we can capitalize on digital solutions to increase diagnosis and linkage to care of persons living with HBV and improve health outcomes," said Prof Dao Van Long, Vice President of Scientific Committee, Institute of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. "With the World Health Organization's 2030 goal to eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health threat fast approaching, the need for a multi-stakeholder approach is more urgent than ever. Hepatitis remains a significant public health burden in the region and concerted effort from various sectors is essential. With the ALL4LIVER Grant, we're proud to join forces with our community partners and academic institutions more closely, nurturing innovative solutions specifically tailored to local challenges. Together, we envision a future where the burden of hepatitis is a thing of the past, and healthcare is truly accessible to all," said Deepshikha Kiyawat, General Manager, Gilead Global Patient Solutions, South East and Central Asia.   Notably, this marks the second cycle of the Gilead ALL4LIVER Grant in Asia. Since 2021, the Grant has been supporting campaigns led by local community organizations, aimed at driving testing, sharing knowledge of viral hepatitis, and raising awareness of the disease. The 2023 Grant recipients span regions including Africa, South America, Asia, Oceania, Europe, and North America. The US$4 million funding will be committed to community-backed innovative projects that address unmet needs associated with HBV, HCV, and HDV by tackling stigma and discrimination, while simultaneously supporting efforts to achieve the elimination of viral hepatitis elimination as a public health concern.  For more information about Gilead ALL4LIVER Grant and former grantees, please visit https://www.gileadall4liver.com/  About Gilead Sciences   Gilead Sciences, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company that has pursued and achieved breakthroughs in medicine for more than three decades, with the goal of creating a healthier world for all people.
