Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), also called chronic diseases, are long duration diseases with generally slow progression. The main types of NCDs are cardiovascular diseases (CVD), cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes and mental disorders. 

Over 85%

of premature deaths due to Non-Communicable Diseases occur in low and middle-income countries 13

41 million

people die from Non-Communicable Diseases every year 13

15 million

of Non-Communicable Diseases deaths occur between the ages of 30
and 69 years 13

As a health journey partner, and because NCDs are largely preventable, we develop initiatives to tackle those diseases and make a difference to better serve the needs of patients suffering from
Non-Communicable Diseases.

In 2017, Sanofi, together with more than 20 biopharmaceutical companies, working in partnership with the World Bank, the Union for International Cancer Control’s City Cancer Challenge initiative and others, launched the Access Accelerated Initiative.

Access Accelerated is a global initiative aiming to improve access to prevention, treatment and care in the field of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), in low-and middle-income countries.  

This initiative is committed to contribute to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal target to reduce premature deaths from NCDs by one-third by 2030.


Within Access Accelerated, Sanofi has already 12 active programs
