The NCD Alliance is pleased to launch the mini-film Waking up and walking the talk on NCDscalling for urgent action to prevent and control noncommunicable diseases. It highlights solutions to tackle the NCD epidemic and help deliver health for all. 

Produced by BBC StoryWorks for NCDA and filmed in Geneva during May 2019, the mini-film was launched today to coincide with the second Global Week for Action on NCDs (2-8 September). With the 2019 theme Ensuring healthy lives for all: NCDs and Universal Health Coverage, the week catalyses activity among people who are engaged in the NCD movement everywhere to celebrate successes and demand action.

In addition to digital and media campaigns, popular activities include walks, fun runs, meetings between government officials and people living with NCDs, health check clinics, workplace health initiatives, and creative competitions. The Global Week for Action on NCDs aims to increase recognition of the importance of civil society participation and advocacy, and ensures voices of those most affected by NCDs are being heard, with demonstrated commitment of civil society in national and global NCD responses.
