Programme for the second Global NCD Alliance Forum

This year's Forum is organised under the banner theme of “Stepping up the pace on NCDs: making 2018 count” with a view of facilitating advocacy planning for the 2018 UN High-level Meeting. It will focus on three key areas:

  • Advocating for NCD prevention and control
  • Breaking down silos and building synergies in the SDG era
  • Sharing tools and strategies for NCD advocacy and mobilisation

These key areas form the basis of discussions during the Forum's plenary sessions as well as concurrent workshop sessions. A total of five concurrent workshops will be hosted under the three key area streams. 

Workshop sessions will focus on what works in NCDs, share concrete case studies and discuss experiences with a view to identifying practical and replicable approaches to advance the NCD movement. 

All workshop sessions will showcase national and regional NCD alliances.
