The NCD Care

The NCD Care Program is a mobile app platform offered by the University of Ghana Medical Center (UGMC) which is designed to support selected diabetic and hypertensive patients with self-management tools. Through the app, patients can easily input their daily measurements from their homes or offices, and have them remotely monitored and managed by their respective doctors in real-time.

  • Encourages self-monitoring and healthy living
