Fundamentals of Implementation Science Programme


Get Ready for Learning

Welcome to our Fundamentals of Implementation Science Programme, which will introduce users to the science of implementation in the context of non-communicable disease programmes for low- and middle-income settings and vulnerable populations in high-income settings.

The programme is free to access and includes preliminary reading, seven modules of specially curated content, and the option for self-certification on completion.

It takes nine hours to complete the core content, plus additional time to complete quizzes, further reading, and reflection.
