NCD Alliance launches Children and NCDs publication

15th June 2011

Children must be part of any solution when looking at the threat to global health posed by NCDs, and to ensure that they are not overlooked the NCD Alliance has launched 'A Focus on Children and Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)'.

Prepared by the Child-focused Working Group of the NCD Alliance, this position paper is addressed to the representatives of UN Member States and all others participating in the UN Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), being held at UN Headquarters in New York in September 2011.

'A Focus on Children and Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)' calls for actions oriented towards leadership, prevention of NCDs, diagnosis and treatment, international co-operation and accountability. For more on children and NCD prevention See NCD Alliance working groups!/NCDChild
