Non-Communicable Diseases and Maternal Health Around the Globe
Partnered Collections, Special Issues
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) account for almost 65% of women’s deaths around the globe, and three quarters of women’s deaths caused by NCDs occur in low- and middle-income countries. This collection, the fifth in a partnership between the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) and PLOS, aims to draw attention to issues surrounding non-communicable diseases, with a particular focus on risk factors and implications for reproductive or maternal health.
