Chronic Conditions and Non-Communicable Diseases
Responding to chronic conditions requires an inter-disciplinary and inter-sectoral engagement. The cluster on chronic conditions and non-communicable diseases seeks to expand our understanding of chronic conditions and how best to respond to prevention and management needs. The prevailing work at the cluster focuses on a range of thematic areas that include, strengthening health systems in rural districts and urban settings; public policy and regulations, especially in areas of tobacco control and road safety; and intersectoral actions for prevention and control of chronic conditions.
