SANCDA Host First Happy Hour Xchange
People living with NCDs are at a higher risk of becoming severely ill if they contract COVID-19. NCDs are underlying health conditions that require you to take special care: cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, respiratory diseases, dementia, kidney disease and cancer.
NCDs and other chronic conditions make the immune system slow down, and it is more likely to get an infection like COVID-19. So we want to keep you healthy.
The South African Non-Communicable Disease Alliance (SANCDA) is proud to announce the first NCD’s Happy Hour Xchange on Thursday 18 March 2021 at 18:00 to discuss COVID-19 in South Africa, exploring the risk and priority of comorbidities as we enter the second year, preparing for the second phase of vaccinations, and preparing for the third wave.
Dr Waasila Jassat, Public Health Medicine Specialist from the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) is our first Xpert.
Registration for the NCD Happy Hour Xchange is essential and Limited space available – register here:
