Global Week for Action on NCDs
September 2 - September 8
The 2nd Global Week for Action on NCDs, 2-8th September 2019, will focus on Ensuring Healthy Lives for All: NCDs and Universal Health Coverage – in advance of the first High-Level Meeting on UHC late in September 2019. Unified we will mobilise to say ENOUGH. and demand Our Health. Our Right. Right Now.
The Global Week for Action on NCDs will build on the success and enthusiasm for the first Global Week for Action on NCDs, as a global 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, while reiterating the need for governments to act on commitments to improve health for all through NCD prevention and control, resulting in the improvement of health and lives of all people in all places.
The opportunities are endless. Possible activities include organising a meeting, community conversation, picnic, fun run, dance party, or art competition. The week is your chance to do something achievable, appropriate, relevant and impactful where you live, but 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
