Re-engineering of the primary health systems is an imperative if we are to adequately respond to the dual epidemics. The existing primary health care structures hardly pay attention to the NCDs .. Similarly the vertical program's often lead to missed opportunities and gross inefficiencies within the systems.
Still it is difficult to convince the decision makers on the importance of investing in interventions that address risk factors whose effects are not directly perceptible or could be far off in future. There is need to collect and package the evidence in a compelling manner such that the politicians pay attention.
