Non-communicable diseases are putting an increasing burden on health systems in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. MSFs NCD project in Manicaland, Zimbabwe successfully rolled out a nurse-led model of care for Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and Hypertension (HTN) in a rural context of a low-income country from July 2016 to June 2019, adapted from an HIV model of care implemented in a similar context. Walter Mugoni has been with MSF since 2016, from the beginning of the nurse-led project.
