Global health agenda

By mobilizing our member network and participating in key advocacy events, including the World Health Assembly and United Nations (UN) meetings, we reach the decision-makers directly. United efforts resulted in the UN holding a landmark High-level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in September of 2011 where 28 heads of state pledged a commitment to reduce the global disease burden.  In partnership with our sister federations in cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory disease, we continue to build on this momentum and lobby for the rising burden of NCDs to be addressed in the global health agenda and the sustainable development goals.
