WHO sending NCDs medicines and materials kits to humanitarian crises

To respond to the continuing need during humanitarian crises to treat people for noncommunicable diseases, WHO has developed and started delivering its first dedicated kits of medicines and equipment for caring for people living with diabetes, hypertension and related conditions.

This video follows the assembly of the kits in the Netherlands and their delivery to southern Turkey, where WHO dispatches the materials to healthcare providers working in Syria to treat people living with NCDs. WHO is also delivering the NCDs emergencies kits to other countries affected by conflicts and natural disasters.
