Seed Programme

The NCD Advocacy Institute’s Seed Programme promotes and supports national NCD coalition-building to establish the foundations for effective advocacy.

The three year Seed Programme includes annual in-person training sessions, ongoing technical assistance, mentoring and peer support, a seed grant opportunity, and the chance to participate at the Global NCD Alliance Forum.

The Seed Programme aims to establish functional national NCD alliances actively involved in advocacy and capable of demonstrating an understanding of the gaps and opportunities in the national NCD response.

It supports the involvement of NCD alliances with the broader NCD community and looks to strengthen alliances’ knowledge of global, regional, and national policy relating to NCD prevention and control. 

The Seed Programme actively encourages networking through highly interactive in-person trainings, online opportunities for participants to keep in touch, mentoring from well-established national or regional NCD alliances, attendance of the Global NCD Alliance Forum and access to the extensive NCD Alliance’s network.
