Non Communicable Diseases (NCD) in Kenya

KRCS is supporting the unit of NCD within the Ministry of Health to formulate the Country’s NCD strategy working through the NCD technical working groups. ICHA has been tasked to systematically develop an evidence base on NCDs in order to influence the entire national pipeline around NCD policy dialogue, epidemiology, programming, tracking, education and advocacy. Additionally this research carried out by ICHA and its partners(IHME, University of Canberra) will inform and enhance NCD programme practice within KRCS. Specific research areas include

 

  • Mapping the epidemiology of NCDs across Kenya
  • Identifying the gaps in service delivery and policies influencing NCD epidemiology across Kenya.
  • Understanding the current awareness around NCDs at the community level
