The Lancet Global Health Dec 19, 2019
Allen LN, et al. - Researchers used the 2015 and 2017 WHO Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) progress monitor reports to estimate aggregate implementation scores for 151 countries, based on their implementation of 18 WHO-recommended NCD policies to evaluate global implementation on the basis of the analysis of multiple geopolitical datasets.
