Curbing world's most fatal diseases: consensus created by health experts offers global prescription

  • Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Canada;
  • Indian Council of Medical Research, India;
  • The National Institutes of Health, USA;
  • Ovations Chronic Disease Initiative, UK.

    The Partnership is intended as a platform for collaboration of global research funding organizations. An advocacy program to be developed will encourage adoption of the Challenges and Goals.

    Without a roadmap, we are all driving in different directions. These problems require long-term commitment and a coordinated effort between multiple funding agencies around a set of clear priorities, says co-author Peter A. Singer, Interim Director, McLaughlin-Rotman Centre for Global Health, Toronto, Canada.

    Says Nirmal Ganguly, Director General, Indian Council of Medical Research: Providing priorities will be the major contribution from this Grand Challenges exercise. The growing interest in this area of research now being registered by governments and funding agencies alike suggests that substantial resources may be available in the future to pursue these priorities.

    Chronic non-communicable diseases constitute the major burdens of illness and disability in all countries of the world apart from sub-Saharan Africa, says Stig Pramming, Executive Director, Oxford Health Alliance. They must urgently receive more resources, research and attention, in proportion to the burden of disease as mapped out in these Grand Challenges. Inaction is costing millions of premature deaths throughout the world and will offset the gains from a decreasing burden of infectious diseases.

    "This study has the potential to galvanise more effective action against chronic diseases, concludes Dr. Daar. In developing countries, many beset by infectious diseases, authorities have not resourced or thought through the policy implications of addressing these silent killers. But that's like putting out one fire in a house burning from both ends."
