Accelerating Health

by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions

Since the start of the global coronavirus pandemic, healthcare systems have faced unprecedented challenges. The Covid-19 pandemic exposed the vulnerability of those living with non-communicable diseases, conditions that are not transmissible such as: heart disease, stroke, chronic lung disease, cancer and diabetes. These diseases are collectively responsible for almost 70% of all deaths worldwide every year. Now more than ever, people are looking at how we deal with health and recognising the pressures health systems face. Yet despite this global focus on health and healthcare delivery, NCDs remain a growing, critical concern. Accelerating Health looks at these issues head on, exploring the successful projects and organisations already making a difference, and asking what will happen in the coming years?
