A version of today’s guest blog from our Sr. Vice President of Corporate Affairs, Bart Peterson originally appeared on PharmaPhorum.
Over the last decade, non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer have been recognised as an enormous global health challenge, impacting the lives of people all around the world and those who care for them. While many people think of non-communicable diseases as a problem only in wealthier countries, the reality is that they are a growing problem everywhere.
Discovering new solutions to prevent and treat non-communicable diseases globally will require the collective creativity, determination and co-operation of scientists, healthcare providers, governments and advocacy organisations.
