NCD Alliance

Building on global political commitments, such as the 2011 UN Political Declaration on the Prevention and Control of NCDs and the WHO Global NCD Action Plan 2013-2020, the NCD Alliance commits to increase recognition of the linkages between non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and women and children’s health through active advocacy on the importance of a life-course approach to NCD prevention and control and the need to act on the social determinants of health such as gender and poverty.

The NCD Alliance will deliver on its commitment by brokering knowledge, mobilizing political support and convening relevant stakeholders, e.g. through hosting side events at important international meetings, producing policy briefs and collaborating with partners such as the Partnership for Maternal and Child Health, NCD Child, UN Agencies and Governments to help improve the health of women and children around the world.
