This webinar will explore the core elements of an evidence-based NCCP, as well as similarities and differences of NCCPs across the economic spectrum of countries, from high-income to lower-middle low-income countries. Additionally, there will be a focus on implementation research, impact of NCCPs, and lessons learned, with a focus on determining value inside of NCCPs and what NCCPs consider “valuable” and why. Other policy elements of determining value and utility in global health care systems (Cost-Effectiveness Analysis, Health Technology Assessment, etc.) will be explored. Finally, this webinar will explore WHO ‘Best Buys’ and other recommended interventions for the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases.
