Bridging a Gap in Universal Health Coverage for the Poorest Billion
Home Research & Publication Bridging a Gap in Universal Health Coverage for the Poorest Billion

The report of the Lancet NCDI Poverty Commission has been published. Report shows that non-communicable diseases and injuries (NCDIs) account for more than a third of their burden of disease. These condition includes almost 8,00,000 deaths annually among those aged younger than 40 years, more than HIV, tuberculosis, and maternal deaths combined.

Report suggests that progressive implementation of affordable, cost-effective, and equitable NCDI interventions between 2020 and 2030 could save the lives of more than 4·6 million of the world’s poorest, including 1·3 million who would otherwise die before the age of 40 years.

The key message of report highlights that; National governments should set and adjust priorities based on the best available local data on NCDIs and the specific needs of the worst off. The International development assistance for health should be augmented and targeted to ensure that the poorest families affected by NCDIs are included in progress towards universal health care.
