Improve access to technologies and medicines to treat NCDs

WHO: Improve access to technologies and medicines to treat NCDs

Heart disease and stroke, cancers, diabetes,
and chronic respiratory diseases and other
noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) cause tens of
millions of deaths per year, the majority of which
occur during the most productive years of life. NCDs
reduce economic output and prevent people around
the world from living lives of health and wellbeing.
Creating the conditions that favour sustainable
development means taking action to prevent and
control NCDs now.

Nine global NCD targets provide a vision for progress
by 2025. The WHO Global NCD Action Plan 2013-2020
and other resources provide a roadmap of policies
and interventions to realise this vision. When
implemented, they will put countries on track to
meet the commitments made on NCDs at the United
Nations General Assembly in 2011 and 2014, and in
the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including
target 3.4 to reduce premature NCD deaths, target
3.8 to achieve universal health coverage (UHC), and
target 3.b to support the research and development
of vaccines and medicines for communicable and
noncommunicable diseases.

The healthcare industry is one of the most carefully scrutinised industries in the world. This Code contains valuable information about the many laws, codes, and procedures that govern the way we do business in South Africa, and in particular, how we conduct interactions with healthcare professionals (HCPs) and healthcare organisations (HCOs). It helps to further define our commitment as an industry and as individuals to abide by government laws, industry standards, and procedures that apply to these day-to-day interactions.
This Code underpins SAMED’s vision which is: to develop a sustainable medical device industry by responsibly improving patient access to innovative medical devices.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_btn title=”Download Now” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”…-1.pdf|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
