[Webinar] How can we generate stronger action against Non-Communicable Diseases?

[Watch the webinar recording] One of the important outcomes of the 70th World Health Assembly held in May 2017 was a firm mandate from governments globally to generate stronger action against the non-communicable diseases (NCDs) that account for 70% premature deaths.Combating NCDs is "one of my priorities for the WHO" said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, newly elected WHO Director General.

The Governments of over 190 nations have also committed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 at the UN General Assembly in September 2015. Reducing premature deaths due to NCDs by one-third by 2030 (and 25% reduction by 2025) are among the goalposts governments should be working towards.

Are we on track to meet these goals/ targets? Are rates (and deaths) of NCDs declining, and declining fast enough?
