PUBLICATION: Preventing and Treating Non-Communicable Diseases

Published by PSI and PYXERA Global

What do cervical cancer, Type 2 diabetes, and hypertension have in common? They are three diseases that are largely preventable, easily screened/diagnosed, and highly treatable with known therapies. Solutions to lessen the impact of the three diseases require a comprehensive approach from all sectors, including health, finance, foreign affairs, education, and agriculture, to work together to reduce the risks associated with non-communicable diseases (NCDs), as well as to promote the interventions which prevent and manage them.
