Umiddelbare mål :
By December 2019 Burundi NCD Alliance has: 1. A solid governance structure and accountability for five branches within five provinces of Burundi, with sufficient capacity to implement activities, generate reliable data and create general awareness 2. Increased the awareness about NCDs and their risk factors for 50.000 people and screened 1.000 people 3. Successfully collected and processed data and used it to inform politicians and media personal to put NCDs on the agenda
Primary target group • 1.000 people expected to attend the screening and awareness activities • 200 People living with NCDs • 50 Community Health Volunteers • 30 MPs and Senators • 30 Media people • 50.000 persons from the general population Secondary target group • BNCDA’s 10 Associations • Local community leaders • Ministry of Health • Religion leaders
This intervention seeks to improve the capacity of Burundi NCD Alliance by establishing branches to set up screening and awareness activities, which can help generate health data and increase awareness about NCDs and their risk factors. By providing unique health data, increase general awareness about NCDs, educate policy makers and media and promote policy initiatives the intervention ultimately seeks to increase the overall health status of the general population and not least prevent people from dying prematurely of NCDs. Burundi is one of the world poorest countries, politically unstable and in a deep humanitarian crisis. Supporting building up a well-functioning Civil Society, not least within the ailing health sector is of great importance.
