The NCDs in Humanitarian Settings Special Interest Group collaborates with partners to improve NCD care delivery in humanitarian crises, including fragile health systems, disaster and conflict settings. We have launched a knowledge hub to present the ongoing work in this area and to collate the key resources accessibly in one place. The knowledge hub acts as a repository for clinical, operational and M&E guidelines and tools, training materials, research publications and projects, and events around NCDs in humanitarian settings. The repository will be continuously updated with emerging resources and research to keep it relevant to the community.
