• Non communicable diseases lead to more deaths globally than all other causes combined. Diseases more commonly associated with wealthy countries such as diabetes, hypertension, and heart failure are both prevalent and rising in developing countries.

    In Rwanda we developed in collaboration with Rwandan Ministry of Heath an innovative model that integrates treatment of hypertension, heart failure, diabetes, and asthma. This model makes high quality NCD treatment feasible in low resource settings.

    After demonstrating success, the Government of Rwanda implemented NCD clinics nationwide based upon this model. Our goal is to help Rwanda implement a model of high quality NCD care that is accessible to all Rwandans in need.
