The Effectiveness of Interventions for Non-Communicable Diseases in Humanitarian Crises: A Systematic Review

Review of the evidence on the effectiveness of interventions targeting NCDs in low and middle income countries

Abstract

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are of increasing concern in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) affected humanitarian crises. Humanitarian agencies and governments are increasingly challenged with how to effectively tackle NCDs. Reviewing the evidence of interventions for NCDs in humanitarian crises can help guide future policies and research by identifying effective interventions and evidence gaps.

The aim of this paper is to systematically review evidence on the effectiveness of interventions targeting NCDs during humanitarian crises in LMICs
