What are NCDs?

The Non-Communicable Diseases Alliance in Kenya (NCDAK) emerged out of the need to comprehensively and sustainably address the rising prevalence of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in Kenya and in other parts of the world. Many individuals, associations, professional bodies and institutions recognise the need to have joint action to address NCDs.

WHO has prioritised five (5) main NCDs which share common risk factors.

  1. Cardiovascular Diseases
  2. Diabetes Mellitus
  3. Cancers
  4. Chronic Lung Diseases
  5. Mental Health

Kenya has added to the list other diseases of importance to include:

  1. Stroke
  2. Accidents and injuries
  3. Musculoskeletal diseases

The risk factors are:

  1. Unhealthy diets with excessive food additives including salt and sugars
  2. Lack of physical activity
  3. Tobacco use
  4. Harmful use of Alcohol
  5. Air pollution

Furthermore, there is a close link between some communicable diseases, e.g. tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS and NCDs.

Other NCDs however, affect a significant number of the population yet they have completely unrelated or non-shared risk factors, for example, Rheumatic Heart Disease and Eye Disease among others.

NCDAK, therefore, provides a framework within which the different actors can plan, act together and ensure that Kenyans enjoy good quality of life free of NCDs and their adverse effects.

Our vision is “A Kenyan people living in an environment that is protective against the risks of developing NCDs and that provides quality care for those who develop NCDs”.

Our mission is to be the lead membership organisation in Kenya on matters pertaining to NCD prevention, control, management and rehabilitation.

Our main objective is to bring together synergistic relationships of multi-sectoral stakeholders that will facilitate effective promotional and advocacy activities for prevention and control of NCDs and provision of quality NCD care services.
