As we get closer to the Second Global Week for Action on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) 2-8 September 2019, the NCD Alliance invites you to start sharing your plans for the week through enoughncds.com.
The Week for Action on NCDs will harness the strengths of the NCD community and momentum toward the UN High-Level Meeting (HLM) on UHC on 23rd September. We are unifying the NCD movement and beyond around our right to health to say: ‘ENOUGH. Ensuring Healthy Lives for All: Noncommunicable Diseases and Universal Health Coverage.’
Some avenues on enoughNCDs.com to promote the NCD movement:
Building on the success of last year’s Global Week For Action on NCDs held ahead of the 3rd HLM on NCDs, everyone, everywhere, is encouraged to join the global movement. Engage with us in the campaign to shift gears from political commitments to meaningful actions which improve the health of all people.
With Universal Health Coverage forefront of the global health and development agenda in 2019, we will emphasise the importance of integrating NCDs to deliver UHC through prevention, primary healthcare, equitable access to medicines, sustainable financing and investment, and engaged and empowered communities. The Week for Action on NCDs can both demonstrate successes and call for further action on NCD prevention and control measures.
Everyone can join in, including people living with, at risk of and affected by NCDs, civil society advocates, youth, Presidents, Prime-Ministers, Heads of State, ministers and policy makers, economists, academics, experts, champions, and appropriate private sector.
Flexibility enables activities to be tailored to your context, resources, capacities, priorities and objectives. The possibilities are endless. NCD Alliance will be sharing tip sheets and template resources over coming weeks.
Over 80 countries were represented in online and offline Week for Action on NCDs activities in 2018, reaching millions of people. In 2019, NCD Alliance is hoping to see even more voices, events, activities and news to agitate and inspire action that will deliver healthy lives for all.
