One of the main research outputs of COHESION consists of an analysis of global and national policies related to non-communicable (NCDs) and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). The partners in Switzerland conducted the global policy analysis, whereas national policy analyses are in progress in Mozambique, Nepal, and Peru.
The COHESION team in Peru met on January 23rd to review the preliminary findings of their national policy analysis. Interesting perspectives were raised in relation to the Peruvian policy agenda, methodological considerations were shared and lessons learned were expressed that will be shared with the partner countries. In addition, participants spoke about potential activities that will follow once the analysis is finalized, including publications and dissemination of findings to national stakeholders.
