BCEPS to extend universal health coverage decision-support to three new countries and Africa CDC, in partnership with the Center for Integration Science in Global Health Equity

Through the Defining and Integrating Noncommunicable Disease (NCD) Interventions in National Health Systems project, a project which has been granted funding by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), the Bergen Centre for Ethics and Priority Setting (BCEPS) will extend its universal health coverage (UHC) decision-support to three additional countries: Tanzania, Nepal and Ghana, as well as the newly established health economics unit at Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The focus of the project will be on defining essential NCD packages and service delivery.


Under the leadership of professors Ole F. Norheim and Kjell Arne Johansson, BCEPS aims to support partners through the World Health Organization (WHO)'s DECIDE network by providing technical assistance, decision support and capacity strengthening for defining essential NCD UHC packages for Tanzania, Nepal, Ghana, and Africa CDC. Through its partner, the Center for Integration Science in Global Health Equity, led by Gene Bukhman, the project will also develop recommendations for integrated delivery of priority interventions in selected countries.
