NCD Meeting for Civil Society
Around 150 civil society representatives and 37 member states attended the hearing. This was followed by two roundtable panel discussions on enhancing international cooperation, and mobilizing whole-of-society efforts around NCDs.
Eva Maria gave the following statement at the first roundtable:
UN NCD Review
Marking three years since the UN High-level Meeting on NCDs, the UN Review in New York was an opportunity for governments, the UN system, and civil society to take stock of progress since 2011.
An Outcome Document was drawn up and emphasised as an important political tool in accelerating the response to NCDs worldwide.
There was a greater push during the meetings for better access to health services, information which allows patients to make informed decisions, and international collaboration to provide adequate resources to address NCDs.
