WHO has developed a new health kit to support treatment for chronic disease patients in emergency settings. The prevalence of NCDs is increasing worldwide, including in emergency/crisis-prone areas. Yet current humanitarian response has not accounted for this emerging burden. Current emergency health kits, including the Interagency emergency health kit (IEHK) 2015 do not contain enough and adequate medicines to manage the most commonly encountered NCDs in primary health care. Consequently, the NCD kit attends to cover this gap by providing essential medicines and medical devices for the management of hypertension and cardiac conditions, diabetes and endocrine conditions, chronic respiratory diseases, and mental health and neurological conditions. The NCD Kit content list can be downloaded under: http://www.who.int/entity/emergencies/kits/ncd-2016-content-list.pdf?ua=1 The basic NCD kit is intended for outpatient care in a variety of primary health care settings, such as mobile clinics and primary health care units, particularly to refill ongoing treatment regimens. It contains oral medicines, basic diagnostic equipment, renewables and additional products needing cold chain, such as insulin, accompanied with treatment guidelines. Only medicines included in the WHO Model list of essential medicines 2015 are available in the kit. The selection of medicines has been aligned with the WHO Package of essential noncommunicable disease interventions (WHO PEN) for primary care in low-resource settings and the WHO mhGAP humanitarian intervention guide for mental health management, including treatment of psychosis, depression and epilepsy. This allows a standardized evidence-based kit.
