Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading cause of death globally. The World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that by 2030 they will be the most common cause of death in Africa. In order to gain insights on NCD action in Francophone Sub-Saharan Africa, the NCD Alliance initiated a mapping of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) working on NCDs in this part of Africa.
The NCD Alliance’s Mapping of NCD Civil Society Organisations in Francophone sub-Saharan Africa launched on 13 June 2019 in Dakar, Senegal, during a regional capacity development workshop organised by the NCD Alliance with the support of Sanofi, is based on the results of the online survey done with representatives of 45 CSOs from 13 countries and in-depth interviews with 10 key informants.
