Results of NCDA’s Global Consultation with people living with NCDs

14th January 2021

As part of the Our Views, Our Voices initiative, NCD Alliance launched a Global Consultation with People Living with NCDs to gather first-hand experiences of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and recommendations for governments to build strong, equitable and people-centred health systems and more resilient communities in the aftermath of the pandemic.

The intersections between COVID-19 and noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are clear, including the particular vulnerabilities of people living with NCDs (PLWNCDs) to the COVID-19 pandemic. Perspectives of PLWNCDs are essential to understand current challenges and to boost efforts to strengthen health systems for the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and to protect people’s ability to lead healthy lives. 

Results from the online consultation will also inform a Global Charter on the Meaningful Involvement of People Living with NCDs, planned for 2021, that stakeholders can endorse to promote an NCD response that puts people first.
