FORESIGHT Global Health is the essential read on prevention and control of non-communicable diseases through transformation of health systems worldwide
Each year, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) shorten the lives of 15 million people in the prime of their lives. As a result, the steady rise in global life expectancy is slowing, or even reversing in some countries. There is an imminent and urgent need to address NCDs, but they are misunderstood, under-prioritised and underestimated; and, consequently, under-prevented, under-diagnosed and under-treated. The lack of attention to the NCD health crisis is not for lack of ideas of what to do about it.
Despite the topic having advanced in the global health agenda over the past decade, there has been little sustained effort to develop the comprehensive policies necessary to combat the manifold causes of NCDs. The structure of health systems today is no longer fit for purpose.
FORESIGHT Global Health aims to contribute to knowledge-sharing and solution building across sectors. The magazine, with its focus on the intersection between in-depth health insights and socioeconomic research, is intended as the journalistic platform for thought leadership and dialogue on NCDs.
FORESIGHT Global Health is the essential read on prevention and control of non-communicable diseases through transformation of health systems worldwide. Led by our editor in Nottingham, our international network of expert journalists and writers report on what really matters, without fear or favour.
Our content is intelligent, knowledgeable, and designed to be visually appealing, digitally and in print. We focus on the multidimensional causes and effects of NCDs, as well as solutions for tackling them across sectors and disciplines.
We publish top quality in-depth articles and expert opinions on our website, and a high quality magazine twice a year that is focused on a specific theme.
Our readers consist of the various health experts, decision-makers and implementers who shape the health sector and who need multidisciplinary insights to inform their decisions and coordinated efforts which are, or will be, transforming for how health systems prevent and respond to NCDs.
