UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs: One year on
by IAPO at 4:15PM Wednesday 03 October 2012 (News)

One year ago, IAPO attended the UN High-Level Meeting on the Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases which was held 19-20 September 2011.

The meeting was a turning point in the fight to prevent and manage NCDs. At this event, a Political Declaration on NCDs was adopted which provided a clear mandate for action against NCDs.

The adoption of the target to reduce mortality from NCDs by 25% at the World Health Assembly in May demonstrated the continued commitment of Member States to control and prevent NCDs.

However, we need to ensure that momentum is maintained and IAPO continues to advocate for action to address all chronic diseases including mental, neuromuscular, immunological and development disorders.

WHO Consultations
Since the UN High-Level Meeting, IAPO has responded to WHO consultations on: strengthening of multisectoral action on NCDs, the global monitoring framework and the 2013-2020 action plan. In our responses, IAPO has highlighted the importance of involving civil society and in particular, patients’ organizations. We will continue to advocate for meaningful patient involvement in all initiatives to prevent and control NCDs.

WHO Regional Committees
The WHO Regional Committees are taking place throughout September and October. EURO, PAHO, WPRO, SEARO and AFRO have all met and EMRO is taking place this week. IAPO is being represented at four of the Committees and will be delivering statements on NCDs to ensure a strong patient voice. Arrhythmia Alliance has shared their experiences of the EURO Regional Committee.

 

IAPO will continue to advocate for patient involvement and for affordable access to healthcare in 2012 and beyond. If you have any questions or comments on our NCD work, then please do not hesitate to contact IAPO at rachel@patientsorganizations.org
