July 18, 2011: Many lessons can be drawn from the scale-up of HIV services in low-income countries for institutionalizing care for non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Such insights are useful as the international community and domestic policy planners converge during the upcoming UN High Level NCDs Summit this September to draw strategies to address the burgeoning challenge of NCDs. Dr. Sania Nishtar has recently co-authored an article with Miriam Rabkin of Columbia University to draw attention to the potential of such experience sharing. The paper has been published in a special supplement of theĀ Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, which was released at an event preceding the International AIDS conference in Rome, on July 15, 2011.
