This will be an interactive group discussion session led by N Devadasan with the support of Dorothy Lall. We shall identify key issues about NCDs in India from a health systems perspective (not a bio medical perspective). The purpose of the discussion shall be to evolve a position paper on NCDs in India by IPH. Participants (from within IPH or outside) can join together to work on a literature review of current health systems understanding of NCDs and work together on a position paper on NCDs from a systems perspective. The position paper shall also guide future activities of IPH’s work on research and action on NCDs.

In this Certificate course in Implementation Research Methods (eIR) course, There is a need to understand implementation in the real-world context. There are many evidence-based interventions to improve health that have not been effectively delivered. The research agenda especially in the context of maternal and child health, non-communicable diseases, etc. has been shifting and needs to shift from understanding the problem to actually intervening and testing solutions in health care systems. This Certificate course in Implementation Research Methods (eIR) course will improve the capacity of researchers to answer implementation research questions.
