NCDs encompass a wide range of disease that result from environmental and behavioral exposures



A malignant growth or tumor resulting from the division of abnormal cells

Lung Disease

Diseases including asthma and lung cancer, that result from smoking, pollution and airborne exposures

Heart Disease

Diseases of the heart that result from lack of exercise and poor nutrition


A disease in which the body doesn’t produce or properly use insulin

Mental Illnesses

Illnesses of the mind that can cause issues with a person’s mood, thoughts or behavior

Addressing chronic disease is an issue of human rights. That must be our call to arms.

Richard Horton, Editor-in-chief of the Lancet

Our Solution



Film is an incredibly powerful communication tool. NCDFREETV tells the story of chronic diseases in a way that inspires, educates and entertains.



Visual media is a great way to quickly get the message out, be it an update from the field, an inspiring quote or an insightful infographic.



Amazing things happen when amazing people come together for a great cause. Our Bootcamps do just that, they connect, educate and inspire, and the results have been amazing!



It’s more than just lunch, it’s a chance for young change makers to learn and discuss some of the most challenging chronic disease topics we cover.



You’re not alone—not if you have an NCD, not if a family member has an NCD and not if you’re working to fight NCDs. Add your story and help put a face on NCDs

Unprecedented challenges require unprecedented commitments.

Margaret Chan, Director General of WHO
