Dear Editor,
Prevention and care of non-communicable diseases is one of the most important components of primary health care, which plays an essential role in maintaining and improving people's health. Despite the success of the IRAPEN program in Iran, this program still face challenges such as lack of coordination between departments, lack of adaptation of the network system to the needs of patients, lack of an integrated information system, and instability of financial resources. For effective care and follow-up, and for a coherent and comprehensive response, multi-sector participation and an integrated approach should be on the agenda of the primary health care system.
