Summary Forum delegates discussed some key challenges and opportunities relating to the effective implementation of evidence for the prevention and control of NCDs, and proposed important recommendations for curbing the NCD epidemic. The Forum recognised some of the important efforts that have already been made in the region in relation to the prevention and control of NCDs over the last two decades. Included were many of the significant policies and initiatives that have been implemented to date in countries such as Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Nepal. However, the Forum highlighted that there are still many barriers to the effective prevention and control of NCDs in each of these countries, and that stronger and more focused efforts are needed if NCD targets are really to be achieved by 2025. The Forum also provided excellent examples of capacity building programs, research, health interventions and networks that have been making inroads in the effective implementation of evidence for the prevention and control of NCDs in the region.
