Enabling Earlier Diagnosis and Treatment

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases are responsible for 71% of deaths globally.

77% of deaths are in low and middle-income countries. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death, followed by cancer, respiratory disease and diabetes. 

Management of these diseases requires screening, detection and treatment. Primary health care is at the forefront of population health and can deliver high impact interventions to enable earlier diagnosis and treatment. 


The Solution Is In Sight

Hear For Life

Early intervention leads to better outcomes in children.
For instance, infants whose hearing loss are diagnosed by 3 months after birth and intervention implemented by 6 months of age can develop speech and language similar to their peers with normal hearing.

At The Heart Of It

Evidence suggests that manual
single-reading methods may not be sufficient for identifying and diagnosing hypertension. Mitigating factors may include white coat hypertension, among others15.
