This Project was aimed at making a systematic collection of information for the processes of the project “Closing the gap between evidence and actions: building capabilities and advocacy to address chronic-non transmissible diseases in Colombia”, for the FES Social foundation, a preeminent Colombian NGO. Data collection involved reviewing project documents and interviews in several cities in Colombia: Pasto (Nariño), Tunja (Boyaca), Quibdo (Choco) and Soledad (Atlantico). The Project was aimed at learning lessons for project improvement.
