Link: Thailand’s physical activity drive is improving health by addressing NCDs
Application/Key learning points: This article presents government strategies to increase physical activity in Thailand and to align with WHOs recommendations to fight the risk of NCDs. New cycle paths have been installed around the country. Popular media, from SMS and social media campaigns to promotions at cinemas and rock concerts, are calling for an increase in physical activity. These include 10-kilometre runs in the capital, Bangkok, and 20 other locations around the country.

Link: Oman beating NCDs at the souk, the restaurant and the bakery doors
Application/Key learning points: Oman’s Ministry of Health is focusing on two big NCD risk factors—diet and tobacco—through an innovative project with great potential for replication. The movement’s best practices target the reduction of salt, sugar and fat intake to combat obesity and lifestyle related NCD’s. Oman’s Nizwa Healthy Lifestyle Project launched two health promotion activities: the “Tobacco-free souk” in Muscat’s open-air traditional market, and the “Healthy Restaurants Initiative”. Through awareness raising and training, the project has led to a 10 per cent reduction of salt content in bakeries since 2015.

Link: Islamic Republic of Iran on a fast-track to beating NCDs
Application/Key learning points: IraPEN is part of Iran’s national health transformation plan, launched in 2014, to provide universal health coverage, including access to NCD prevention and care, and mental health services. The implementation of IraPEN, which is the country’s adaptation of WHO’s package of essential NCD interventions for primary health care, is helping patients receive focused medical support to address NCDs.

Link (PDF): “Best buys” and other recommended interventions for the prevention and control of NCDs.
Application/Key learning points: This 28-page document provides policymakers with a list of ‘best buys’ and other recommended interventions to address NCDs, based on an update of Appendix 3 of the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of NCDs 2013–2020. A list of options is presented for each of the four key risk factors for NCDs (tobacco, harmful use of alcohol, unhealthy diet, and physical inactivity) and for four disease areas (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer and chronic respiratory diseases).
