One thought on “GHF2012 – PS07 – School Based Interventions to Tackle NCDs

  1. Complex issue! Interesting (and extremely worrying) to see data from our colleagues in Tunisia and Nepal.

    Programme design and interventions are complex and need to take into account so many aspects. The challenge is also how these interventions are scaled up to the “real world”.
