During this week, IFPA is actively following the discussions during the 67th Session of the Regional Committee for Africa, taking place in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. One of the most prominent discussion topics is on agenda item 15 – Regional Framework for Integrating Essential Non-Communicable Disease services in Primary Health Care (PHC).

 IFPA supports the development of a regional approach, and encourages following a holistic-person approach, strengthening the interventions with the recommendations from the Global Report on Psoriasis, and urges for early screening of psoriasis patients for diabetes and CVDs, which can be carried out with the tools and technologies listed in the WHO PEN for primary care in low-resource settings, as a cost-efficient way to prevent and reduce the NCDs burden.
