Recent evidence suggests that HIV/AIDS and Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) share essential commonalities in their risk factors, progression and management. However, the interrelatedness between the global responses to HIV/AIDS and NCDs hasn?t been systematically analyzed. Objective: To examine the similarities and differences between global responses to HIV/AIDS and NCDs. Methods: Using preliminary review of literature, we identified four major themes of the global response: Strategies, Systems, Intervention and Monitoring and Evaluation. Detailed review of purposively selected documents was then conducted under these four themes. Similarities and differences between the global response to HIV/AIDS and NCDs were then examined for each major theme using qualitative content analysis and interpretive synthesis. The findings were presented using narrative summaries, tables and boxes.
