Advocacy

NCD Alliance's advocacy seeks to ensure health remains central to national government priorities, and tangible wins are secured for global NCD prevention and control. Our advocacy frames NCDs as an economic and a social justice issue, and extends beyond health, joining forces with partners across a diverse range of sectors that impact upon NCDs.

Accountability

With global NCD commitments, targets and plans in place, governments need to focus attention on how they will be accountable for the commitments made. Non state actors have a role in assuring accountability through monitoring, review and action.

Knowledge Exchange

NCD Alliance produces analysis and publications on priority policy issues, works with partner organisations to translate knowledge and policy into action, and helps ensure that good practice in evidence-based policy and implementation are shared among international, regional and national forums in person and online.
