We changed the name of Health Education Program For Developing Countries to Health Education Program For Developing Communities in April 2016. All communities are in ongoing stages of development, and not always for the best. In fact, people in so called “developed” countries are often much more in need of evidence-based nutrition and other lifestyle guidelines than people in so called “developing” countries. And as reported by the WHO, unless that changes, the resulting “Slow Motion Disasters,” although preventable, will bankrupt “even the wealthiest countries.”
