Just 3 weeks to go until the UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs

05 Sep 2018

As we all know, the countdown has begun to the 3rd UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs. It’s time to get really, really busy. Here are a few suggestions from our partners at the NCD Alliance:

  • Plan something locally for the Global Week for Action on NCDs (3-9 September), then share it globally;
  • Become, or nominate, an NCD Champion, someone who will lend their name and face to this growing global movement;
  • Add your own voice and /or make a pledge about what you will do to address NCDs, via the ENOUGH website;
  • Double down on your advocacy efforts, including pressing Heads of State to attend and make bold commitments at the HLM;
  • Watch, and share the news, when the following are launched in September (dates tentative, check the side event calendar for updates):

Week of 10 September
