Dialogue on Noncommunicable Diseases and International Cooperation

ICN will take part in the Dialogue on Noncommunicable Diseases and International Cooperation convened by the WHO Global Coordination Mechanism on Noncommunicable Diseases from 30 November through1 December 2015 in Geneva, Switzerland. The Dialogue provides a platform for an interactive, strategic multi-stakeholder discussion on how countries can fulfil the commitments made by Heads of State and Government in 2011 and 2014 to strengthen international cooperation on the prevention and control of NCDs within the framework of North–South, South–South and triangular cooperation. The dialogue will result in a report with recommendations. This is the first global meeting convened by the WHO on NCDs following the United Nations General Assembly Summit for the Adoption of the Post-2015 development Agenda (New York, 25-27 September 2015).  The Dialogue will provide an opportunity to explore how to countries can fulfil their NCD commitments in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030, which includes a global target to, by 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from NCDs.
