Health system response to NCDs: innovations and challenges

This session will ask how we put in place the health system responses needed to respond to the rising tide of NCDs. NCDs pose major challenges to many health systems that are still designed to address acute episodes of care. But change is difficult, in the face of long established professional roles, inappropriate financial incentives, and difficulties in working across organisational and sectoral interfaces. This session will present experiences from some of the more innovative models that are being implemented in Europe today.
