NCD Care in Rural Ethiopia : Meeting the Challenge
When : 12th October : 13.00 - 14.00
Where : Southampton General Hospital, (Room to be confirmed)
: To date the global health community’s activities have been focused primarily on the eradication of infectious diseases and improving maternal and child health. As a result Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) have been greatly neglected particularly in low-income countries.
In Ethiopia, NCDs are becoming increasingly prevalent among the rural population. The resulting morbidity and mortality burden is high, with 30% of all deaths due to NCDs and their complications.
David Phillips, Professor of Metabolic and Endocrine Programming, MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit. University of Southampton.& Andrew Mortimore, Consultant in Public Health and Visiting Fellow at PCPS University of Southampton will be talking about their work in Ethiopa and the THET Ethiopia NCD Alliance (THENA).
