Share Improving care of people with NCDs in humanitarian settings

Event Details

There is an increasing burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) among people displaced and otherwise affected by humanitarian crises. Humanitarian organizations, such as Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) are facing new challenges when confronting them as there are many uncertainties regarding the best strategies to implement NCD care in these crisis-affected settings.

This one day symposium will bring together speakers from academic, development and humanitarian organizations to address some of the most important issues faced when working to improve the care of patients with NCDs. We aim to share best practices and to identify evidence gaps for the assessment, management and monitoring of NCD programmes in humanitarian settings, and more generally to strengthen the link between humanitarian, policy and research organizations.

Participants from the following organisations will be in attendance: Department for International Development (DFID), International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), International Medical Corps (IMC), International Rescue Committee (IRC), NCD Alliance, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), United Nations Relief and Works Ageny for Palestine (UNRWA), University of Geneva, World Health Organisation (WHO) and more.

This symposium is linked to a thematic series on NCDs in humanitarian crises being published in Conflict and Health
