Improving primary care services has been identified as a key need on most countries and in particular ensuring systems are able to provide good quality services for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) which are becoming more prevalent amongst this population.
This review was undertaken to help inform the co-creation of interventions that improve primary care focused NCD services. It forms part of an evidence based on models available and their effectiveness.
The review had two main objectives:
i) scope out the evidence on models used to incorporate the prevention and management of non-communicable diseases into primary care in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs); and
ii) document evidence of the effectiveness and where available cost-effectiveness of these approaches.
