BCC is a vital part of NCD-F as majority of our work reflects upon promotion of changing behavioral patterns among the subjects for the benefit of our society as a whole. As the forums mission is to ensure health justice and developmental sovereignty, BCC proves to be most beneficial for all that fall under the umbrella work of NCD-F.
