Reflections on health service responses to NCDs in older populations

Vasoontara Yieng, Judith Healy, Hal Kendig, Julie Byles

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    This cross-cutting chapter reflects on the two country case studies, noting similarities and differences between health services for older people with NCDs, and also identifying emerging issues. While noting both leading and lagging services, the chapter focuses on initiatives in the two countries that other low- and middle-income countries in the region may find relevant. There is considerable potential for countries in the Asia-Pacific region to learn from each other in developing innovations and adapting their health services to address the many challenges of an ageing population and NCDs.
