Ruth Hunter: Tackling NCDs in Humanitarian Settings is a Growing Challenge

Multisectoral networks have a vital role in meeting the needs of vulnerable people, says Ruth Hunter.

Human suffering in humanitarian settings is not just a direct result of a conflict or humanitarian disaster but includes death and disability from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and respiratory conditions. In parallel, global forced migration has reached a record high with 68.5 million people displaced from their home in 2018. [1] The average length of displacement is now more than 20 years.
