Her Story, in Her Voice: Women Living with NCDs
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) represent the world’s leading cause of death. While they are the culprits in 63% of all mortalities worldwide, they affect women in unique ways. Collectively these diseases, which include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancers and chronic lung disease, kill 18 million women each year and represent the #1 cause of death among females, according to the World Health Organization. Last year, Arogya World made a commitment at the Clinton Global Initiative to undertake this survey. This year, they are back to share the results—as well as solutions. These are the stories of women around the world.
