The Taskforce on Women and Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) brings together fourteen global health organizations from the women’s health and NCD communities to respond to the unique and growing burden of NCDs on women in low- and middle-income countries by mobilizing leadership, expanding technical expertise and disseminating evidence to inform policymaking, planning and services.
The goals of the Taskforce on Women and NCDs are two-fold: to develop and disseminate information and evidence-based guidance, and to mobilize national policymakers, public health leaders and civil society.
Emergent health challenges are transforming the landscape of women’s health needs in most low- and middle-income countries. Demographic and lifestyle changes as well as globalization and urbanization are leading to a rapid increase in NCDs – including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory disease.
