Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases - Hypertension Programme Report

The GACD Hypertension Programme Report outlines the findings from the GACD Hypertension Programme and the experiences of the first joint initiative to fund implementation science research on NCDs in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and vulnerable populations in high-income countries (HICs). The report discusses the scientific contribution of the GACD Hypertension Programme, highlights the capacity-building outcomes of this model, and addresses the broader benefit of the Programme to national health policies and the global NCD response.

The report is co-authored by WHF Emerging Leader Jordan Jarvis, and reviewed by, among others, WHF Senior Science Advisor Pablo Perel.
