r4d UNIL, Erasmus, WHO joint research-policy workshop hosted by our new center, the LCHE

The workshop was held with the objectives of gathering researchers and health system specialists working on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Low- and Middle-Income Countries, to identify knowledge gaps about implementation, and effects of policies that aim to address the coverage gaps in NCDs healthcare. It was a great opportunity to showcase our r4d project and our findings to a larger community of researchers and stakeholders, including the World Bank, the World Health Organization and the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research.

In addition to the above, the workshop also gathered important feedback on research from policymakers with the aim of developing research agenda to address knowledge gaps. The activity helped in identifying knowledge gaps that impede the design of policies necessary to secure more effective and equitable NCD screening and management, and called for a tighter collaboration between policy makers and the scientific community.
