What is this survey about?

This online survey aims to better understand the daily impact of NCDs on people’s lives and their recommendations for decision makers. NCDs are the most common cause of death and disability worldwide, accounting for 70% of all deaths and more than three out of four years lived with a disability.

The main NCDs comprise cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes, as well as a range of other diseases and conditions, including mental health disorders, neurological disorders, autoimmune disorders such as psoriasis, bone and joint conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis, renal, oral, eye and ear diseases, and injuries and disabilities. Many NCDs are linked by four shared major risk factors – tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, and harmful use of alcohol.

For the purposes of this survey, we define people living with NCDs as a broad group of people who are currently living with a NCD, who have had a NCD in the past, and those who are closely connected to someone with a NCD – such as relatives, close friends and care partners (also referred to as carers or caregivers).

How will this survey be used?

Your responses will be collected along with those of other people all over the world to help create an Advocacy Agenda of People Living with noncommunicable diseases. This Agenda will be presented to decision makers from across the world so that NCDs become a priority everywhere.

Your answers to the survey will be used to develop the Advocacy Agenda of People Living with Noncommunicable Diseases and to support other local, national or global advocacy initiatives.

With your permission, the NCD Alliance may share survey results with national and regional alliances working on these diseases. Please complete and submit this survey before August 31st, 2017. Feel free to contact us at ourviewsourvoices@ncdalliance.org with any questions.
