Primary Healthcare Service Delivery Models
Identifying Effective Primary Healthcare Service Delivery Models for Integrated Management of Non-Communicable Chronic Diseases in Resource-Constrained Settings
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading cause of death worldwide, with nearly 80 percent of the deaths in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). Funding from the Havey Institute for Global Health will support a new collaboration between Northwestern, the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) Research Network and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation-funded Primary Health Care Research Consortium (PHCRC) to leverage existing funded studies of models to integrate NCDs into primary care in LMICs.
