NCD Hard Talks Webinar

Date: 18 November 2020, 13:00 CET

Title: “Building an NCD Ready Workforce”


DetailsReducing the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) necessitates a transformation in how, and by whom, NCD services are delivered. This redistribution will see roles traditionally performed in hospitals shift to the community, to where people live and work and can most readily access services. Shifting services for NCD screening, early diagnosis, appropriate treatment, palliation and rehabilitation to primary health care, and expanding the delivery of primary health care (PHC) to meet the health-care needs of all people living with NCDs, will not be possible unless the PHC workforce is adequately equipped. This means not only bolstering the supply of PHC workers, but optimizing the distribution of critical tasks among different cadres. Executing this transition and expanding capacities requires unprecedented cooperation, multi-sectoral collaboration and regulatory action.

This webinar session will convene health system and workforce experts to examine the realities, challenges and solutions in preparing the PHC workforce to deliver quality NCD services to those who need them most.
