Responding to noncommunicable diseases in Solomon Islands

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Responding to noncommunicable diseases in Solomon Islands” – below is their description.

Noncommunicable diseases are the leading cause of death in Solomon Islands. In order to combat this growing issue, WHO supported the country in establishing the SolPEN (Solomon Islands Package of Essential Noncommunicable Disease) programme. Patients with NCDs are now seen at specialized clinics led by NCD coordinators who work with patients to improve their health from a holistic perspective. In Tulagi, an island in Central Province, Virginia Legaile is an NCD coordinator whose involvement in her community extends outside the clinic office.
