Proposed Outcomes Document for the United Nations High-Level Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases

We, the NCD Alliance, request Governments of the world at the UN High-level Summit on NCDs taking place 19-20th September 2011 to commit to:

Leadership

Implement the WHO 2008-2013 Action Plan for the Global Strategy for the Prevention and Control of NCDs; Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health; and the Global Strategy to Reduce the Harmful Use of Alcohol.

Include NCDs in the global development goals that succeed the Millennium Development Goals in 2015.

By 2016, 60% of countries implement a national NCDs Action Framework, a Coordinating Authority and a country-level Monitoring and Evaluation System and develop national health plans with specific objectives and targets for the prevention, early detection, treatment and care of NCDs.

Develop, implement, monitor and evaluate strategies addressing NCDs engaging the whole of government, the private sector and civil society and adopt a ‘health in all policies’ approach where all major policies and capital projects are subject to a health impact assessment.
