NCD research: critical factors for building resilience

The World Health Assembly has set a goal of reducing premature mortality from NCDs by 25% by 2025. Evidence-based research, innovative approaches and political will are critical to make a difference in building responsive and robust health systems, effect widespread policy shifts and drive behavioural change.

We will look at the key policies of those countries doing best in preventing NCD related mortality; hear from policymakers pushing boundaries to build resilient public health policy capable of fighting chronic disease, and discuss the pioneering research that will inform the NCD prevention policies of the future.

In the this session we will present recent research including a comparative analysis of the performance of public health policies of particular relevance to NCDs in Europe and Asia, and use interactive methods to ask the audience to assess factors critical to their success, what we can learn from the data presented and how to bring about change in our different countries.
