Description

Gathering 16 case studies originating from nine countries in the Eastern Mediterranean Region, namely Iran, Pakistan, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Morocco, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt, this handbook distils lessons learnt from Civil Society Organisation (CSO) activities relating to awareness, advocacy, access, and accountability in NCD prevention and control. It also outlines critical elements of success and describes some of the common impediments faced by CSOs in the pursuit of their objectives. In combination with discussions from the pre-regional caucus that took place in August 2016 as part of the WHO EMRO/NCD Alliance EMR capacity-building workshop, these cases offer key insights relating to civil society engagement with NCD prevention and control in the region.
