    Abstract The African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) is a pan-African, women-led, grant-making foundation supporting African women’s organisations working at local, national, and regional level to promote, advance and realise African women’s rights across the continent (AWDF 2017). Since its inception in 2001, AWDF has acquired resources from individuals, corporations, other foundations and governments to provide financial, capacity building, knowledge production and advocacy support to change-makers―African women’s activist organisations and individuals―who advance women’s rights and gender equality on the continent (AWDF 2017). AWDF’s current strategic plan Shaping the Future (2017-2021) focuses the organisation’s work around investments to build the best possible future for women in Africa. As part of developing the strategic plan, AWDF commissioned a future trends analysis titled, Futures Africa: Trends for Women by 2030 (AWDF 2017). This report indicated that non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are rapidly growing in terms of the burden of disease and soon becoming the leading causes of death in many countries across Africa (AWDF 2017).
