Non-Communicable Diseases: Co-Creating Solutions for Prevention and Treatment

We invite you to advance known preventions and treatments targeting non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by joining the collaborative #GEFlive conversation Wednesday, January 24 at 10 a.m. ET. At the 2017 Global Engagement Forum: Live, we discussed similarities and barriers across non-communicable diseases (NCDs). This lays the foundation for effective collaboration moving forward.  Join the conversation with PSI, IntraHealth, Novartis Foundation, and PYXERA Global for the #GEFlive, NCDs Twitter Chat: Co-Creating Solutions for Prevention and Treatment. 

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.
