Partnering for Change is producing research papers and publications, developing patient materials, and engaging in joint advocacy to improve access to context-appropriate prevention and care for people living with non-communicable diseases in humanitarian settings.
As part of our joint advocacy work, we have developed advocacy resources to raise awareness about and mobilise resources to improve NCD care in humanitarian settings. Our patient materials are carefully tailored to the local context and will be used by the Lebanese Red Cross in a clinical setting to educate and empower people living with non-communicable diseases. All Partnering for Change initiatives, including our field projects in Lebanon and Iraq, are based on the evidence produced through our research work.
