According to The World Health Organizaion, by the year 2030 non-comunicable diseases (NCDs) will be the number one killer of Africans on the continent. In 2014, nearly 1 in 3 African adults were estimated to have high blood pressure, the highest prevalence in any region.
Preventable and treatable diseases present enormous health burdens for communities in the development world. Diseases that have largely been under control in the developed world still have immeasurable impact on impoverished populations living around the globe and specifically those living in rural areas across Sub Saharan Africa.
