The 2nd GLOBAL WEEK for ACTION on NCDs, 2-8th September 2019
Unified we are mobilising to say ENOUGH. and demand Our Health. Our Right. Right Now.
Our focus is on Ensuring Healthy Lives for All: NCDs and Universal Health Coverage.
This is in advance of the first UN High-Level Meeting on UHC.
The Global Week for Action on NCDs is an opportunity to talk to each other, to leaders, to media, to crowds, to the world about the importance of integrating NCDs across all aspects of UHC. We are reiterating the need for governments to act on commitments to improve health for all through NCD prevention and control. This results in the improvement of the lives of all people, in every city and every village. The opportunities are endless. The week is your chance to do something achievable and impactful where you live that is linked to a global movement.
Together we say ENOUGH. Together we’ll celebrate progress and leadership.
Together we’ll call for action on commitments. It’s Time to Deliver on NCDs and Health for All.
ABOUT THE ENOUGH CAMPAIGN
NCDs & THE UN HIGH-LEVEL MEETING
ABOUT THE NCD ALLIANCE
To ensure the most successful High-Level Meeting (HLM) possible, we advocate for the participation of Heads of State and Government throughout the UN HLM process and at the HLM, and an action oriented Outcome Document that includes commitments relating to the following priorities:
Community and political leaders, celebrities and respected influencers from all sectors and fields are joining the movement to draw a line in the sand and say ‘enough is enough’. NCD champions are stepping up to the challenge to raise awareness, motivate investment, and inspire and commit to political action to reverse the trajectory of NCD burden.
VOICES OF CHANGE
NCDs affect us all - all levels of society, all ages, all races. Changing NCD outcomes one child at a time may mean a different future for us all!
There is a strong relationship between dietary habits and chronic NCDs. Let's make a pledge to eat locally grown seasonal foods, bring diversity to eating habits, develop a value system and help each other.
Stroke Alliance for Europe, President
Both my mum and dad had strokes, but we now know more about how to prevent, treat and support people who are at risk of stroke or have had one. Enough procrastination, let's fight back against NCD's.
MAP OF IMPACT
The Map of Impact shows where ENOUGH is resonating around the world, and we welcome submissions of your own local news, events and resources. Voices of Change and Pledges will also be added to the map to demonstrate just how far and wide NCDs are impacting on people and need action for change. We accept contributions in English, French or Spanish.
