Global NCD Framework Campaign
NCD Global Framework: Delivering the Outcomes from the UN High-Level Meeting
We believe that the wide-ranging commitments made by Member States at the UN High Level Meeting on NCDs should be seen as a comprehensive package of measures to deliver on the ambitions set out in the Political Declaration.
We are calling for a global NCD framework:
- spearheaded by a multisectoral global partnership which mobilises resources for NCDs and catalyses effective financing mechanisms
- which promotes the integration of NCD prevention and control into all relevant health and development policies, plans and programs
- has the mandate to fully develop and cost a multisectoral global plan with WHO
- a plan which includes a global monitoring framework with a broad range of indicators
- and global targets that drive progress to prevent and control NCDs
The global monitoring framework, indicators and targets for NCDs
Paragraphs 61 and 62 of the Political Declaration call upon WHO, with the full participation of Member States to develop a comprehensive global monitoring framework by the end of 2012, complete with a set of indicators, and a set of voluntary global targets to prevent and control NCDs.
In order to fulfil this mandate, WHO has embarked upon a consultation process with Member States and other stakeholders around the set of ten suggested targets first introduced last summer. This consultation process has been ongoing throughout 2012, and will conclude at a formal Member state consultation at WHO in Geneva on 5-7 November 2012.
Briefing on 2013-2020 Global Action Plan
The NCD Alliance has produced a briefing note (available here) in response to the first Discussion Paper for use by civil society advocates in discussions with their governments. We welcome feedback on the recommendations in this paper. Your comments will help the Alliance formulate its final submission to the WHO consultation before the 7 September deadline.
Multisectoral NCD partnership options
The NCD Alliance believes that the establishment of a mechanism to unite all sectors and stakeholders is critical to reduce NCDs deaths by 25% by 2025 and to fulfil the commitments made by Member States in the Political Declaration.
