Description

The Norwegian government announced a first-ever international health and development strategy to combat noncommunicable diseases in low-income countries.
 
The Norwegian Minister of International Development, Dag-Inge Ulstein, and the Minister of Health, Bent Høie, launched the new strategy, “Better Health, Better Lives - Combating Non-Communicable diseases in the Context of Norwegian Development Policy 2020-2024” on 22 November in Oslo. 
 
The NCD Alliance applauds Norway's exceptional example of global heath and development leadership, hopefully inspiring many other countries to turn longstanding political commitments into action to tackle the world’s biggest killer: NCDs.
