Norway was the first country to launch an international development strategy on NCDs, Better health, better lives (pdf),which positions Norway at the forefront in expanding work on NCDs in low-income countries. In line with the strategy, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health aims to cooperate with relevant actors and institutions with public health functions, to combat NCDs.
