UNGA 76 Online Side-Event (Government of Norway, WHO, NCD Alliance): Commemorating 10-years since the first Political Declaration on the Prevention and Control of NCDs (2011): reflections and hope
In 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the first Political Declaration on the Prevention and Control of NCDs. This acknowledged that NCDs constitute one of the major challenges for development in the twenty-first century, undermine social and economic development throughout the world, and threaten the achievement of internationally agreed development goals.

In the decade since, we have seen intensified advocacy and action, leading to dramatic normative, institutional and operational progress. Yet, since the Declaration, 150 million lives have also been lost since the first UNHLM on NCDs. The world remains off-track to achieve SDG 3.4., and the discrepancy between stark human cost of NCDs (accounting for 74% of deaths globally in 2019) and overseas development assistance stubbornly persists.

On 27 September, please join WHO, the Government of Norway and the NCD Alliance for an engaging online-only event. Learn from the expertise of Member States, WHO staff, persons living with NCDs and civil society leaders on their reflections of the last 10 years of progress, championing successes and opportunities for the NCD agenda over the coming decade, and how WHO is developing a forthcoming implementation roadmap for 2023-2030 in support of achieving SDG target 3.4.

You can also follow along with the hashtag #NCD10 on social media!

NOTE: The session will begin at 10:00 EST / 16:00 CEST, but we will open the webinar 10 minutes early to ensure easy registration, and to begin our packed agenda on time.
