ional and technical assistance. "In 2009, NACDD made a strong commitment to the PCDC to fight chronic disease throughout the region. We are as committed as ever to that position today," said John Robitscher, CEO of NACDD.

Currently, the PCDC provides leadership in the development of a USAPI NCD Collaborative model that proactively targets integration of health care systems and expansion of community outreach efforts to improve health outcomes. Based on the widely adopted Chronic Care Model, effective NCD Collaborative teams may help advance needed policy and environmental strategies to reduce the burden of diabetes and other NCDs in the USAPI. In 2010, the Pacific Island Health Officers Association resolution declared a state of emergency due to the epidemic of NCDs and also encouraged the collaborative work necessary to combat the burden of NCDs in the region. “PCDC is taking action in regards to this declaration,” stated Ms. Augusta Rengiil, PCDC Executive Director, “the NCD Collaborative model respects the unique USAPI cultures, decision making process, and need for evidence-based healthcare; while also acknowledge the strengths, wisdom, and resources of the Pacific people. Working with the Pacific leadership, in country, we hope to positively impact health outcomes in our communities.”
