Join us for this web forum exploring innovative and sustainable models to bridge supply side gaps and bring health services closer to underserved communities around the world. Non-communicable diseases are on the rise globally and predicted to severely impact Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC), yet health systems in most of these countries are ill prepared to handle the influx of NCD patients; human resources for health remain scarce and with limited skills; information systems are dysfunctional or non-existent; and patients’ access and adherence to chronic disease medication is problematic.

Three global public private health experts from India, South Africa and Brazil participating in the Public Health Institute’s Global Health Leaders corporate health fellowship program will share successful models that are increasing access to care for non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and heart disease for the most vulnerable populations. They will speak on how a holistic approach to patient care and treatment adherence yielded visible ownership of enhanced roles within the targeted communities. They will also highlight the value and impact of multi-sector approaches that bridge the public-private gap to forge joint health solutions that are country owned and sustained. The regional achievements they will share can be models for other regions in the United States and across the globe.

Registration is free and closed captioning is available to all attendees. This event is recommended for anyone working in public health, advocacy, community-based systems, and hospitals/health systems; public health experts in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, NCD and chronic disease practitioners; public private partnership directors or managers.
