In this cross-sectional qualitative study, authors assess existing monitoring and evaluation tools developed for HIV care in Ethiopia and analyze how these tools might be adapted to support NCD services in the country.
This commentary, published in the American Journal of Public Health in 2016, discusses how primary care can be redesigned to tackle the global epidemic of NCDs in low and middle income countries, and highlights primary care as a primary platform for a comprehensive health system response to NCDs.
This commentary, published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, outlines the imperative to extend global research, access to medicines, and care delivery efforts to better address the diabetes burden of the world’s poorest patients.
