We envision a future where no one dies prematurely from a treatable, preventable disease, and all people living with non-communicable diseases have access to affordable, quality care.
By working across sectors—and in new ways—we can drive progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal target to reduce premature deaths from NCDs by one third by 2030.
Please join Access Accelerated and our partners, Union for International Cancer Control and the World Bank Group, for an engaging discussion, focused on how we can accelerate access to NCD care through the power of groundbreaking, purposeful collaboration.
The international nonprofit organization Population Services International (PSI) and the biopharmaceutical company Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) today announced Healthy Communities, a US $1 million collaboration to expand access to life-saving hypertension medicines and treatment services in Myanmar and Vietnam.
Approximately one-quarter of all adults in Myanmar and Vietnam have hypertension (1, 2), which can lead to stroke – a leading cause of mortality in both countries. The Healthy Communities program, designed to reduce the barriers that limit hypertension detection, screening, and treatment adherence, aims to incubate sustainable and scalable treatment models and understand how best to support patients and providers.
