NCD Diaries and themes
Each series of NCD Diaries will have a thematic focus, drawing on the key pillars of the global Advocacy Agenda of People Living with NCDs and, potentially, more specific themes, depending on relevant advocacy opportunities.
The current NCD Diaries theme is:
The experience of living with multiple chronic conditions
The first series of the NCD Diaries project will illustrate the realities and experiences of living with multiple chronic conditions; that is, either two or more NCDs, or NCDs and an infectious disease (e.g. HIV, TB, COVID‑19, etc.).
Through their Diaries, the lived experience advocates will have the opportunity to highlight the growing need to reorient health systems to integrate care packages across multiple chronic conditions, through a holistic approach that puts people first.
This first NCD Diaries series will run from April through July 2021.
As part of the selection process, potential Diarists will indicate their interest in the thematic focus of that series. For the visual format, the photographic content should be developed in line with this theme. For the audio and text formats, at least one of the three Diary entries should incorporate the selected theme.
