4.6 Non-communicable disease

4.6.4 Summary

Considering the global burden of NCDs, this review found a dearth of evidence on interventions against the most prevalent NCDs of cardiovascular/pulmonary disease and cancer. Additionally, nearly all of these studies were conducted in the Middle East. This could be due to prolific disease-specific groups concentrated in these areas, but geographic over-representation is a lesser concern than the absence of evidence on the majority of NCDs in these settings and populations. Thus, high quality studies are required on NCD interventions in humanitarian crises settings in order to be able to demonstrate a significant improvement in health outcomes as a result of the delivery of NCD interventions in complex emergency settings. However, there is substantial evidence on the effectiveness of NCD interventions in stable and development contexts as argued by Ebrahim et al. (2013) with numerous review available in the literature (e.g. Araujo et al. 2007, Djulbegovic et al., 2010, Saquibe et al., 2013).
