Challenges to the surveillance of non-communicable diseases – a review of selected approaches
Kroll, Mareike and Phalkey, Revati K. and Kraas, Frauke (2015) Challenges to the surveillance of non-communicable diseases – a review of selected approaches. BMC Public Health, 15 . p. 1243. ISSN 1471-2458
Background: The rising global burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) necessitates the institutionalization of surveillance systems to track trends and evaluate interventions. However, NCD surveillance capacities vary across high- and low- and middle-income countries. The objective of the review was to analyse existing literature with respect to structures of health facility-based NCD surveillance systems and the lessons low- and middle-income countries can learn in setting up and running these systems.
