Reducing the Burden of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)

体育投注正规网址Increasing community awareness of risk factors and preventative measures, improving the early detection and diagnosis of NCDs, and building health system capabilities, particularly in low-resource primary care settings.

Through Access Accelerated, a global partnership working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goal target to reduce premature deaths from NCDs by 2030, Pfizer and the Pfizer Foundation support a variety of initiatives focused on NCD prevention, diagnosis and treatment around the world. In Vietnam, the growing burden of NCDs is a public health priority and the Ministry of Health has been working to integrate basic NCD services at the community level in commune health stations (CHS). Responding to this need, the Pfizer Foundation launched a program with FHI 360 and the Department of Health (DOH) of Ho Chi Minh City to improve access, quality, and coordination of diabetes and hypertension services at CHS. The Abundant Health program is designed to strengthen the capacity of existing health facilities and health workers. Hypertension and diabetes prevention, screening, treatment and management are integrated into community outreach and routine services offered at CHS.
