    Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes are on the rise in Africa due to changing lifestyles. Half of Cameroon’s urban women are obese and, in 2002, NCDs caused 43% of deaths in the country.

    This project aims to increase awareness of body fat composition and monitoring beyond hospital settings by tapping into existing exercise groups in several Cameroon cities — a novel approach to motivate exercise adherence and healthy weight maintenance, providing equipment for body fat tracking.
