On the occasion of International Women’s Day, the government, in partnership with the city of Mont-Dore, is organizing Saturday, March 9, a day dedicated to health and well-being. Isabelle Champmoreau, vice-president of the government responsible for equal opportunities, presented the program and ambitions of this event.

This day, organized by the government and the town of Mont Dore, in partnership with the association “Agir pour le cœur des femmes”, Saturday March 9 at the Boulari cultural center, is part of a global plan dedicated to “health feminine “. It includes actions in the areas of prevention, awareness-raising on contraception and the fight against menstrual poverty.

Isabelle Champmoreau, vice-president of the government responsible for equal opportunities at the initiative of the demonstration, indicated that she wanted to “place this international women’s rights day on the fundamental right to be in good health. This is really an important message for us at government level, with all our partners.”

A health focus on two diseases in women

For this day, the government wanted to highlight two pathologies that particularly affect women: endometriosis and cardiovascular diseases.

The vice-president specified that “women will be able to benefit from information on site and attend awareness workshops on endometriosis”. Véronique Pereira, patient-expert from the Endomind France association was invited for the occasion. It will also offer meetings with schools and the general public on the sidelines of March 9.

On the other hand, although cardiovascular diseases represent the leading cause of death among women in the world, few of them are aware of it. This is why the first “Women’s Heart Day” overseas, intended for gynecological and cardiovascular screenings, will take place during the event. “There will be a prior appointment made with the Agir pour le cœur des femmes association,” assured Isabelle Champmoreau. It’s a system that exists in mainland France and which we are going to roll out for the first time in New Caledonia.”

Learn and take care of yourself

In order to promote physical activity, the day will begin with a 5-kilometer course open to all, then visitors will have the opportunity to try several sporting disciplines throughout the day. Cooking workshops offered by chef Dominique Wing-Ka will promote the benefits of a balanced diet.

Furthermore, this event placed under the sign of well-being and health will address “the question of mental health, therefore also being well in your head and in your personal life”, as the vice-president underlined.

Professionals will intervene to lead collective and individual workshops to take care of yourself. “For example, we will have coaches for professional retraining and legal advice. There will also be more intimate interventions with sex therapists, lifting the taboos a little on a certain number of subjects,” explained Isabelle Champmoreau.

Finally, the know-how of women entrepreneurs will be highlighted through numerous craft stands.
