THE 2018 UN HIGH-LEVEL MEETING ON NCDs

Death and illness caused by noncommunicable diseases bring suffering and heartache to millions of people worldwide every year – those who live with the diseases, as well as their families and friends. The greatest injustice: much of this NCD suffering and death is preventable, and we have long known the solutions. An obstacle to sustainable development, inaction in addressing the risk factors and health system weaknesses continues to drive up the prevalence of NCDs. This is unacceptable. We have had enough of waiting for meaningful action.

Learn more about NCDs & ENOUGH – our 2018 campaign for the right to a healthy life free from preventable suffering, disability and death for everyone, everywhere, now.

CAMPAIGN PRIORITIES

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 commits to the following 6 priorities:

NCD CHAMPIONS

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

WHAT HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH OF?

TELL THE WORLD

Add your own voice of change – we are all affected by NCDs, add your voice to the campaign through ‘Voices of Change’. Voices of Change will be integrated into ENOUGH communications and compiled and shared with country Missions to the UN in New York as part of the ENOUGH campaign.

Two patients who attended our community conversation expressed their views and voices and died a month after. What could we have done for their solvable challenges? End empty political talk and act.
