Our main program in all communities is focused around noncommunicable disease (NCD). Described as a “slow-motion disaster,” NCDs in low and middle income countries are growing rapidly, with a 27% increase in NCD deaths projected in Africa over the next ten years. However, the majority of health budgets (estimated at 80%) have been focused on combating communicable disease. Medcan Naweza aims to close this gap in care through programs focused on identify and treating patients with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory disease and cancer, as well as educating communities about healthy lifestyle to prevent NCDs. All of our programs are designed through research of existing guidelines from health leaders such as the World Health Organization to develop clear and concise protocols.
