          Abstract

          The Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) is a collection of the world's biggest public research funding agencies. We fund joint programmes into life-style related or chronic diseases (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, certain cancers, lung diseases and mental health). The alliance coordinates and supports research activities that address the prevention and treatment of NCDs or chronic non-communicable diseases, on a global scale. NCDs account for 60% of deaths globally. Our multi-country, multi-disciplinary research focuses in particular on the needs of low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), where 80% of deaths from chronic diseases occur. We also focus on research with vulnerable populations of more developed countries.
