"A non-communicable disease, or NCD, is a medical condition or disease which by definition is non-infectious and cannot be passed from person to person. NCDs may be chronic diseases of long duration and slow progression, or they may result in more rapid death such a sudden stroke. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the four main types of non-communicable diseases are cardiovascular diseases (like heart attacks and stroke), cancer, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructed pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes." - South African Gov, What is a non-communicable disease?, accessed August 2019, http://bit.ly/2ziZ6XC

  • Blood Safety Strengthening Programme (BSSP)

    As one of the WHO recognised essential medicines, safe blood is a critical treatment for severe bleeding during pregnancy and childbirth, childhood malaria and trauma. The aim of the Blood Safety Strengthening Programme is to support international efforts to improve accessibility and safety of blood in resource-constrained countries by electronically capturing and managing data about blood donors and donations from the point of donation to point of transfusion.
