UN Civil Society Hearing on NCDs - Statements by panellists and attendees

19th June 2014

In preparation for the UN NCD Review, the President of the General Assembly H.E. John W Ashe hosted an informal interactive hearing for civil society on 19 June 2014 to discuss the successes and gaps in progress since 2011, and to identify priorities for NCDs going forward. 

Approximately 150 civil society representatives and 37 Member States attended the hearing, which included an opening session chaired by H.E. John Ashe and remarks from Ambassador Sally Cowal, American Cancer Society, on behalf of civil society. This was followed by two roundtable panel discussions on enhancing international cooperation, and mobilizing whole-of-society efforts around NCDs, respectively.
