The role of public health services in NCD prevention within health care reform : report on a WHO meeting, Kaunas, Lithuania 23 April 1997
AbstractDuring the thirteenth meeting of the directors of countrywide integrated noncommunicable disease intervention (CINDI) programmes in 1996, the advantage of using public health services in noncommunicable disease (NCD) prevention within health care reform was discussed. It was agreed that, as a first step, the availability of information in this area should be clarified and priority areas for action identified. To this end, a questionnaire was elaborated and distributed to the countries participating in the WHO CINDI programme; 13 countries responded. The participants at the Meeting on the Role of Public Health Services in NCD Prevention within Health Care Reform discussed the results of the survey and agreed that the experiences of countries would be used to compile a second questionnaire seeking more detailed information. The results of the second questionnaire would contribute to the preparation of a comprehensive report on the possibilities for improving NCD prevention and control through public health services
