Who We Are

The mission of the NCD Alliance is to unite civil society and drive action on noncommunicable disease (NCD) prevention and care, leaving no one behind.

NCDA brings together 300 members in 81 countries, including a network of 66 national and regional NCD alliances, to form a respected, united and credible global civil society movement. Our community includes member organisations addressing NCDs and their risk factors, national and regional NCD alliances and people living with NCDs.


About the NCD Alliance

NCD Alliance is uniquely placed to drive the NCD agenda forward. We are a recognised global thought leader on NCD policy and practice, a convener of the civil society movement, a partner to governments and UN agencies, and an advocate for people at risk of or living with NCDs.


NCD Alliance Structure

In 2017, NCDA made an important step forward, evolving from an informal alliance to a stand-alone NGO registered in Switzerland with a President, Board of Directors and consolidated membership base.
