Innovative Ideation

80% of all deaths from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) happen in lower-and middle-income countries. The story of NCDs in these parts of the world is not merely one of health inequality and hardship – it is also a story of hope, innovation, and the people pushing for better health against all odds. This episode explores the challenges that demand creativity in their approach, and the visionaries who are working with what they have to make lasting change.


Join journalist Julie Macdonald as she talks to the people who live and breathe healthcare: Lea Kilenga, executive director of Africa Sickle Cell Organization; Israel Bimpe, director Africa Go to Market, Zipline; and Phangisile Mtshali, director of Africa programs for the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation.
