Scaling-up NCD Interventions in South East Asia

Project description

New strategies to prevent, detect and treat hypertension and diabetes

The burden of non-communicable diseases, such as hypertension and diabetes, is increasing in south-east Asia, specifically in Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam. These countries have national or large-scale evidence-based programmes to prevent hypertension and diabetes as well as to detect people at risk and treat patients. The EU-funded SUNI-SEA project will validate effective scaling-up strategies of these programmes. It will create synergies in financing (health insurance and public funding), use of international standards/protocols, and local guidelines and community involvement. It will also use online applications to validate the contextual factors for effective and efficient implementation. This will allow researchers to uncover the most important success factors and strategies. The findings will assist in the formulation of strategies to improve global health.
