Integrating noncommunicable disease prevention and care into global health initiatives and universal health coverage

Policy Research Report

About the REPORT

This report, commissioned by the NCD Alliance to The George Institute for Global Health and supported by the Helmsley Charitable Trust, focuses on priority populations addressed by global health initiative programming.

It draws attention to the scale and nature of unmet need for NCD services, identifying what has been learnt from past efforts at expanding or integrating health care services. Through analyses of data from an online survey, interviews, and a targeted literature review, it brokers knowledge by showcasing examples of where global health financing mechanisms have supported the provision of cost-effective NCD prevention and care services, and in so doing, supported progress towards UHC. It demonstrates that there are ways to effectively support NCD service provision through global health programming, and that these will vary in different contexts.
