Abstract

Noncommunicable diseases (NCD) caused an estimated 36 million deaths in 2008. Recognizing that NCD are a global health and development priority, Heads of State and Government adopted the Political Declaration on NCD at the United Nations General Assembly in September 2011. The six objectives focus on international cooperation and advocacy, country led multisectoral response, risk factors and determinants, health systems and universal health coverage, research development and innovation and surveillance and monitoring. The overall aim of the action plan is to operationalize the commitments of the UN Political Declaration on Noncommunicable Diseases, building on what has already been initiated and achieved.
