UNGA77 side event: Unlocking the potential for collective impact

Unlocking the potential for collective impact: Finding the hidden benefits of partnering for noncommunicable diseases

In New York? Register for the event

There has been a universal call for greater collective action in pursuit of the UN SDGs. Yet, how do we know if our collective efforts are leading to collective impact? What metrics should be used? How do we demonstrate results? Can we clearly link cause and effect?

NCD Alliance, alongside Access Accelerated, RTI International, City Cancer Challenge, , PATH, World Bank and the World Heart Federation, this special UNGA side event will explore models of measuring collective impact and share experiences and insights from six years of collective action tackling NCDs.
