WHO'S global strategy for NCD prevention and control aims at supporting member states in their efforts to reduce the toll of morbidity, disability and premature mortality related to NCDs.
To achieve the above goal, WHO focuses on global partnership and networking, technical support for implementation, research and development of programmes on NCD prevention and control.
WHO'S regional networks on NCD prevention and control were developed as tools for collaboration between active countries, in order to disseminate information, exchange experiences, and support regional and national programmes on NCD prevention.
The aim of rotating international visitors' programmes is to present theory and practice of integrated NCD prevention programmes for participants who were involved in the planning, implementation or evaluation of local or national projects in the field of NCD prevention and health promotion.
The programme featured the experience of ongoing model projects of comprehensive integrated community- based NCD prevention, their background, principles, practical implementation, monitoring, evaluation and results.
