Sharing stories that inspire change

Do you or someone you care for live with noncommunicable diseases? Share your story through the NCD Diaries!

NCD Diaries is a community-based, multimedia storytelling project that shares real NCD experiences in order to raise awareness and call for action. Expressions of Interest are now being accepted for Series One of NCD Diaries, which will illustrate the realities of living with multiple chronic conditions; that is, either two or more noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), or NCDs and an infectious disease (e.g. HIV, TB, COVID-19, etc.).

Many people living with multiple chronic conditions face significant challenges due to health systems that fail to adequately address all aspects of their treatment, care and support. Through the NCD Diaries, you can share your lived experience and drive change. In this first series, Diaries will highlight the growing need to reorient health systems and provide integrated care across multiple chronic conditions, through a holistic approach that puts people first.

If you are interested in pursuing this opportunity, submit your Expression of Interest by Tuesday 16 March. Expressions can be submitted by individuals with lived experiences affiliated to the NCD Alliance membership, in English, Spanish and French. Following selection, the NCD Diarists’ involvement as part of Series One will span approximately four months (April – July 2021).
