Co-hosted by the NCD Alliance, World Health Organization and the World Diabetes Foundation, this event will bring focus to the urgency of investing in NCD prevention and care. It will also start the discussion on what success at the Second WHO Global NCD Financing Dialogue in 2023 might look like, and what it will take to achieve this.
This virtual dialogue will unpack the priorities set out in the NCDA financing brief “Invest to Protect: NCD financing as the foundation for healthy societies and economies”, harnessing the momentum of the Global Week for Action on NCDs as a unifying platform for the global NCD movement to call upon governments, organisations, and individuals to act on NCD prevention and care and to leave no one behind.
