This was another collaborative effort, a coalition of NCD civil society organizations in East Africa operating under the umbrella of the East African NCD Alliance Post- 2015 Initiative.  These included the NCD alliances of Uganda, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya, and Rwanda, in partnership with the Danish NCD Alliance, the global NCD Alliance, and three universities (University of Southern California Institute for Global Health, Office of Global Health, Department of Internal Medicine, Yale University and Center for Global Health, Aarhus University).

The aim of the survey was to review progress made and gaps that need to be addressed by governments in the prevention and control NCDs. It focused on policy and programmatic action, including institutional challenges.
