Since the start of the global coronavirus pandemic, healthcare systems have faced unprecedented challenges. Now more than ever, people are looking at how we deal with health and recognising the pressures health systems face. Yet despite this global focus on health and healthcare delivery, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) remain a growing, critical concern, as they are responsible for almost 70% of all deaths worldwide every year.
Our Executive Director, Midnight joins the conversation on Representation Matter episode with consultant paediatrician and presenter Dr Ravi Jayaram returns to the show to lead this electric conversation between Sheila Tlou Motswana, co-chair of the Nursing Now Global Campaign and Global HIV Prevention Coalition; and Dr Anthony Yanni, Senior Vice President and Head of Patient Centricity at Astellas.

As awareness grows of the variation disparities in people’s lived experiences, listen to discussion on how NCDs are experienced, treated, and managed across different sections of society.
