Working in partnership to develop sustainable ncd services for the rural poor in ethiopia
To date the global health community’s activities have been focused primarily on the eradication of infectious diseases and improving maternal and child health. As a result Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) have been greatly neglected particularly in low-income countries.
In Ethiopia, NCDs are becoming increasingly prevalent among the rural population. The resulting morbidity and mortality burden is high, with 43.5% of all deaths due to NCDs and their complications.
A country where every person afflicted by NCDs has access to appropriate health care.
