Research and Reports
This timely new publication follows on from the adoption – for the first time - of a specific government commitment to noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and HIV integration at the June 2021 United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) High-Level Meeting on AIDS. The report considers how the COVID-19 response and existing strategies for the integration of HIV services into primary health care can provide tangible options for the scale-up of NCD/HIV integration that responds to and meets the needs of people living with HIV and NCDs. This paves the way towards achieving the 90% target included in the June 2021 Political Declaration.
The NCD Alliance commissioned Equal International to develop this research report with support from Viatris. Viatris did not author the report; Viatris leaders provided context and input to help inform the report.
We believe that everyone deserves to live a healthy life. With only about half of the global population able to receive essential health services – a figure further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic – there is much to be done to ensure sustainable access to medicines worldwide. Our inaugural Sustainability Report aims to continue introducing Viatris as a new kind of healthcare company, including our commitments to stakeholders as we seek to empower people worldwide to live healthier at every stage of life.
