Kenan Institute Asia fights to create healthy communities wherever we work, from stopping the spread of infectious diseases to providing communities with the tools and knowledge to protect themselves. Non-communicable diseases take 8.5 million lives every year in Asia. Developing nations are exposed to these diseases, as healthcare systems are already stretched. With populations in Southeast Asia continually rising, countries will be increasingly at risk. Moreover, public health outbreaks are set to become progressively complex and challenging. Kenan has extensive experience working with public and private sector partners on the eradication and control of infectious diseases like malaria and avian and pandemic influenza, while also implementing behavior change programming to prevent lifestyle diseases, with a particular emphasis on school-based behavior change and elderly care communication programming.
