The retrospective study in brief

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.

Analysing cost effectiveness of NCD interventions in South-East Asia: A review of literature

In 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) presented an updated list of ‘best buys’ interventions to inform policymakers on the cost-effectiveness and recommended interventions focused on the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). SUNI-SEA compared cost-effectiveness studies performed in South-East Asia with the WHO ‘Best Buys’ interventions.
