Brazil country quote

Initiatives that empower patients through knowledge and access to care— such as the HealthRise program—are so important for people living with diabetes and cardiovascular disease in Brazil.

Expanding Our Impact

As an emerging international economic market in Latin America, Brazil has become a chief partner in international development efforts. At the domestic level, however, the Brazilian population is at a high risk for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Abt works to empower Brazilian patients to seek treatment and limit the burden of people who are unable to afford and access care. For example, the HealthRise program aims to reduce premature fatalities associated with NCDs by 25 percent by 2025.
