Thanks Patricio. Nice blog. We need to build on the momentum of the UN HLM (which I also enjoyed attending), and explore innovative models to: (a) implement and rigorously evaluate evidence-based public health interventions to prevent NCDs; (b) expand the base of science and population-based data in Low- and Middle-income nations to assist evidence-based decision-making, and also build local science capacity through North-South collaborations; and (c) develop and test several innovative health systems and financing models to deliver evidence-based integrated care, and also to evaluate the feasibility and challenges of integrating management of NCDs alongside communicable diseases in the same populations. - Venkat
