PEN-Plus Partnership launch at UNICEF House
September 15, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
More than 60 representatives of leading global health policy, technical, advocacy, and financing institutions and people living with NCDs gathered at UNICEF House in New York on September 15, 2022, to introduce the PEN-Plus Partnership, a major international initiative to address the global burden of severe NCDs and injuries that cause more than 500,000 avoidable deaths every year among children and young adults living in extreme poverty. More than 1,000 others joined the PEN-Plus in Action event via livestream on the @UNICEFHealth twitter.
The PEN-Plus Partnership is dedicated to mobilizing the technical and financial resources required to rapidly scale up implementation of PEN-Plus – a proven strategy for delivering integrated chronic care services for type 1 diabetes (T1D), sickle cell disease (SCD), rheumatic and congenital heart diseases (RHD/CHD), and other severe NCDs at first-level hospitals in poor, rural areas of low- and lower-middle-income countries (LLMICs).
