solution

NCDFREE is a crowdsourced global social movement dedicated to getting NCDs on the map of young people everywhere. We do this through social media, design, short film and creative events. In our first five years, we’ve reached millions of people worldwide, hosted 10 advocacy bootcamps, and produced more than 70 short films about NCDs and our work.

 

What are NCDs?

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are some of the biggest killers worldwide, accounting for 70% of all deaths globally. They include cardiovascular disease, cancers, respiratory diseases, and diabetes—many of which are lifestyle-related and preventable.
