Case Studies

In this series, we are featuring NCD treatment, care and prevention approaches that are producing results around the world.  We are preparing these case studies for journalists and policy briefings, and hope they will ignite the imagination and energy of other organizations.

These case studies were developed with Arogya World intern Elizabeth Nussbaumer, and produced in collaboration with Global Health Council (GHC). We thank Craig Moscetti of the GHC for review, and also thank Dr. Karen Siegl from Emory University, co-founder of the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network, for strategic advice on the case studies.
