“THE NCD BURDEN IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE BY 17% BY 2025 – SO THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW!
The Global Week for Action on NCDs aims to slow the increasing burden of NCDs, thanks to the contributions of people everywhere. Actions can be big or small – the power of the Global Week for Action comes through collaboration across countries and sectors towards a common goal: reducing preventable death and illness and increasing health and equity around the world.
Each year from 2020 to 2025, the Global Week for Action of NCDs will raise awareness about NCDs while focusing on a specific theme. In 2022 (5-11 September), we are bridging the NCD Investment gap. This year is all about prioritising the urgent need for increased NCD financing to prevent and treat NCDs and build resilient health systems that leave no one behind.”
