This presentation provides an introduction to the social determinants and drivers of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD). Poor social determinants leads to a higher risk of illness and a lower chance of having suitable healthcare access, which leads to illness, which in turn leads right back to a deeper level of poor social determinants. In continuation of this, we’ll discuss how to address social determinants and how we need to be involved.
This presentation provides an introduction to the term Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD). We’ll explore what NCD’s are, and look at some of the epidemiology (the burden of disease) and finally we’re going to look at some of the major misconceptions and misunderstandings around NCD’s
This presentation focuses on the rise of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) and the findings related to NCDs globally. Furthermore, we’ll explore the concept of Disability-Adjusted Life Year (DALY), which is the main indicator that’ll be used to monitor burden and disease outcomes for the risk factors.
