In Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam policies are in place and governments are committed to reduce NCDs. Guidelines have been developed and NCD programmes have been designed in the three countries, but these programmes are not reaching enough people (especially men and younger persons). Find here a summary of activities in the prospective phase of the study and our expected outcomes.
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.
from retrospective phase
In the first year, the project analysed the situation in each location. We made an inventory of what is happening in each country in NCD prevention and control and compared this with findings in the literature of what is effective and what is cost-effective. We drew lessons learned from each country and made an inventory of strong and weak points. Based on the findings we produced recommendations for the implementation of community-based and primary healthcare activities in the prospective phase of SUNI-SEA.
In the first year of the project, SUNI-SEA researchers investigated what is currently taking place in the country, what is effective and what is cost-effective. This is a summary of key lessons learnt from our retrospective study.
