Scaling-up NCD Interventions in South-East Asia (SUNI-SEA)
Through evidence-based research in Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam, SUNI-SEA will help inform countries how to effectively scale up strategies to tackle non-communicable diseases.
A worldwide health concern
Non-communicable disease or NCDs is a worldwide health concern in particular in developing countries. In South-East Asian countries, more than half of all deaths are caused by NCDs.
