“Access Accelerated. Moving NCD Care Forward” Fighting Non-Communicable Diseases

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) – cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and mental health disorders – are a global health crisis impacting people everywhere. At the World Economic Forum 2017 in Davos, 22 global pharmaceutical companies including Bayer, in partnership with the Union for International Cancer Control and the World Bank, launched “Access Accelerated. Moving NCD Care Forward” – a global initiative to increase access to prevention of and care for NCDs in low-income and lower-middle income countries.
