The aim of my study which I presented at the PHASA conference was to develop an integrated evidence-based model for the management of chronic NCDs in a rural community of Limpopo Province.
The meeting provided participants an opportunity to collectively agree on strategies and targets to be reached in South Africa to improve the situation regarding non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
The Gauteng Department of Health and Social Development hosted a high-level summit on NCDs aimed at developing a position paper detailing a NCD agenda for the Province.
This report provides information required by countries – including South Africa – to assess their situation in face of the growing threat posed by non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
The NCD Alliance seems to offer a conflicted strategy. On the one hand, a vertical and disease-oriented approach is recommended. On the other hand, it calls for strengthening (primary) health systems.
