Description

More than 200 civil society representatives from six continents adopted the Sharjah Declaration on NCDs: Civil Society United Towards 2030 at the first-ever Global NCD Alliance Forum, held in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

"No one sector alone will reverse the NCD epidemic, but working together we have the tremendous opportunity to chart a new course toward health and sustainable human development for a more equitable and healthier future for all", states the Declaration. 

Adopted at the closing ceremony, the Sharjah Declaration is a global expression of NCD civil society's commitment to engage in advocacy and accountability to advance the NCD response. It signals an important shift in focus to translate global commitments into national action.
