Policy development and implementation processes in the CINDI and CARMEN noncommunicable disease intervention programmes : a comparative study
Other TitlesPolicy development and noncommunicable disease prevention : the road from Kaunas
AbstractThe WHO CINDI (Countrywide Integrated Noncommunicable Diseases Intervention) and CARMEN (Conjunto de Acciones para la Reduccion Multifactorial de Enfermedades No Transmisibles) programmes provide member countries with a policy framework and methodology for applying existing knowledge on the integrated approach to the prevention and control of major noncommunicable diseases (NCD). Collectively, they represent a wealth of experience in the application of a wide range of health promotion and disease prevention interventions in countries with different socio-economic conditions, health systems and cultures. This report presents a synthesis of the results of the second comparative study on policy development and implementation processes in the CINDI and CARMEN programmes: a qualitative analysis of experience gained in translating the theoretical framework of the integrated approach to NCD prevention and control into a community-based action programme. The study reflects national experiences in NCD policy development and implementation in 30 member countries and provides an insight into the strategic issues faced by the CINDI and CARMEN programmes. Since the vast majority of the countries included in the study belong to the CINDI programme, the aggregate results apply mainly to CINDI. However, the lessons learned from the study will be of benefit to both the CINDI and the CARMEN programmes alike. It is the intention to use this report to promote informed discussion and sharing of experience to help track and monitor processes of policy development in this area over time and to increase research in health promotion and disease prevention policy within the CINDI and CARMEN programmes
