There is evidence that the prevalence of certain non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, is increasing rapidly in parts of sub-Saharan Africa. Others, such as asthma and epilepsy, are known to be common but to be poorly managed. This paper describes a project, funded by the Department for International Development of the British Government, which aims to provide costed and evaluated treatment packages for use at primary health care level, methods and materials for evaluating the quality of non-communicable disease care, and a protocol for the assessment for national opportunities for the prevention of hypertension, heart disease and diabetes. Methods are being developed and piloted in urban and rural Tanzania and Cameroon.
