Harnessing innovations to improve access and quality of NCD treatment in Russia and CIS

How to tackle Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) is a growing topic of importance in emerging markets and middle income countries. The Russian Federation could be perceived as a benchmark country in this group with regard to how NCD issues are being addressed.
