Advocacy Toolkit

As part of the NCD Alliance's program Strengthening Health Systems, Supporting NCD Action, generously funded by Medtronic Philanthropy, the NCD Alliance is pleased to launch “Non-communicable Diseases: Join the Fight” - an online advocacy toolkit aimed at supporting civil society’s national and regional NCD advocacy efforts.
The toolkit showcases good practices, lessons learnt, and recommendations to support NCD advocacy at national and regional levels. The toolkit was informed by interviews with NCD advocates in all regions, drawing upon the experiences and case studies of the growing number of national and regional NCD alliances.
The online advocacy toolkit offers tips, links to helpful resources and expert content in three main areas:
  • Working in an advocacy alliance
  • Influencing and monitoring NCD policy and practice
  • Holding governments accountable
Drawing upon the experiences of accountability efforts of other health and development communities, the toolkit includes a template Civil Society NCD Status Report and a benchmarking exercise, which can be used by NCD NGOs and NCD alliances to assess their government’s progress in implementing political commitments.
The NCD Alliance encourages advocates worldwide to use the toolkit and to develop your own Civil Society NCD Status Report, with examples available throug the resources section of this website. The online advocacy toolkit can be found here.
Please share any feedback you have on the toolkit with us at [email protected], as well as examples of how the toolkit is supporting your NCD advocacy efforts.
