Successful year for the Ethiopian NCD Alliance

22nd February 2013

The NCD Alliance is proud to share the work of national NCD Alliances in their fight to address NCDs.

The Mathiwos Wondu-YeEthiopia Cancer Society has been working with the Working Group on NCDs, in Ethiopia to push its own government in reviewing and approving the Strategic Framework document on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). It is also included in the fourth Health Sector Development Program (HSPD) and Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) of the country, for 2011-2015 periods.

With the collaboration of the Federal Ministry of Health /FMoH/ and WHO Country Office, the Working Group on NCDs started working on national strategic action plan, development of program, guidelines and protocols to challenge the growing burden of each NCD here in Ethiopia.
