Survey: overseas development assistance and NCDs

Can you help us with work targeting UK policymakers in relation to prioritising overseas development assistance for NCDs, a clear urgent need globally especially in the context of COVID-19?

The survey can be found here. Please feel free to share this with your own networks. It covers questions on NCDs within universal health coverage, the impact of overseas development assistance on NCDs, and the impacts of Covid-19 on NCDs in your country.

It will take about 15–20 minutes to complete. We would be very grateful for your help – please complete as much as you are able. It will remain open until Tuesday 30 November.

This survey has been developed by two consultants* (one in the UK and the other in Kenya) to the UK Working Group on NCDs, both of whom are themselves people living with NCDs. The survey will inform a report and webinar on the impact of overseas development assistance on NCDs, in the light of recent cuts to UK ODA, recognising the vast disparities that exist in health care systems across the world. The report will be shared widely including with relevant UK policymakers. 

Read more on the project, report and webinar here.

This work is funded through financial support from the NCD Alliance. 

* The consultants on this project, on behalf of the UK Working Group on NCDs, are Helena Davies (retired paediatrician, trustee of the World Hospice Palliative Care Alliance and person living with multiple NCDs) and Zipporah Ali (chair of the NCD Alliance Kenya, palliative care and public health specialist, and person living with multiple NCDs)
