Millennium Fellowship Project: CHRONmate
CHRONmate is an organization dedicated to alleviating the health and economic effects of chronic diseases in vulnerable regions. We achieve this through support, multi sectoral collaboration, innovation and advocacy. With these, we aim to Promote healthy living and economic growth while reducing incidence of premature deaths. Noncommunicable disease or chronic diseases is a noninfectious health condition that cannot be spread from person to person. Example include cancer, heart diseases, diabetes and chronic respiratory disease they affect all age groups and are rising in Africa due to urbanization and lack of healthcare and political commitment to address them. According to WHO NCDs kill 41 million people each year, equivalent to 71% of all deaths globally. CHRONmate acknowledges that these ailments are caused and can be tackeld by factors across different sectors and disciplines. As such, we employ four basic tools: support (for those affected), collaboration (by engaging communities and establishing partnerships), innovation (by designing new products and processes) and advocacy (by protecting the rights of NCDs patients and calling for action). To achieve this, we are beginning with health awareness programs, community discussions/focus groups, journalism, counselling and research with a vision to scale up for consultation in the future.
