USAID Tackles the Burden of Non-Communicable Diseases in Europe and Eurasia Region

In September 2011, the UN convened a High Level Meeting on NCDs, reflecting the growing international commitment to tackle the enormous and neglected problem of NCDs worldwide. Subsequently, there has been increasing focus on country-led implementation and global policy frameworks to accelerate prevention and control of NCDs, including but not limited to:

  • The United Nations Political Declaration of the High-level Meeting of the General Assembly on the Prevention and Control of NCDs;
  • Health 2020: the European policy for health and well-being;
  • The WHO global action plan for the prevention and control of NCDs (2013–2020).
