Nurses In Zimbabwe Find Solution For Chronic Disease Management

In 2016, Doctors Without Borders collaborated with the Ministry of Health and Child Care to pilot a model of care adapted to the local environment to address the double burden of diabetes and hypertension and HIV in rural Manicaland province. This pilot used valuable lessons learned from the successful HIV programme scale-up at national and international levels for the past two decades. In Zimbabwe, Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) are estimated to account for 31% of total deaths, with diabetes, hypertension, and asthma as the main killers.
