Commonwealth Secretariat commissioned C3 Collaborating for Health NCD Case Studies

<< back to Publications index

Ahead of the Commonwealth Health Ministers' meeting in Geneva in May, the Commonwealth Secretariat commissioned C3 Collaborating for Health to write a series of case studies on preventing NCDs throughout Commonwealth countries.

The resulting publication, 'Taking up the challenge of non-communicable diseases in the Commonwealth: 17 good-practice case studies', is now online in pdf form (the low-res version that is online is a bit over 1MB) on the C3 website (http://bit.ly/iIK7kw) and on the Commonwealth website (http://bit.ly/kb9Mdy).

It was a pleasure to put the book together, particularly as it was an opportunity to work closely with many people in C3's network from countries as diverse as India, Lesotho, Australia, Malta, Canada and the Caribbean - I would like to thank all those who contributed such interesting examples.

Thanks too, of course, to the Commonwealth Secretariat for the opportunity, and for the excellent design and publication of the finished product.

I hope you enjoy reading it, and find it useful for advocacy in the run-up to the UN High-level Meeting.
