The Consortium for Non-communicable Diseases (NCD) Prevention and Control in sub-Saharan Africa (CNCD-Africa) is a member-driven umbrella that brings together multiple disciplines, sectors and partners in the region to address NCDs in an effective, efficient and sustainable manner.

Consortium members work in various settings to address the common risk factors for major NCDs in sub-Saharan Africa (cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and chronic respiratory infections): nutritional patterns and transition; obesity; lack of physical activity; tobacco consumption; and inappropriate use of alcohol.
