Evaluation of NCD risks, NCDs and NCD monitoring frameworks in Australia and Indonesia

Despite Australia and Indonesia being at different stages of epidemiological transition, Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) are the leading contributors of death and disability in both of these countries. The quality and nature of health data with respect to NCDs in these settings (essential to identifying priority areas and monitoring progress) remains poorly defined. This project will not only define what data currently exist (central to informing policy) but also key data gaps (a research agenda).
