UN interactive hearing: Civil Society calls for more action on NCDs
NCD Alliance "The interactive stakeholder hearing was convened by the President of the UN General Assembly (PGA) as part of the preparatory process for the UN HLM. Per the modalities for the UN HLM on NCDs (link is external), it brought together civil society, philanthropic foundations, academia, medical associations, the private sector and broader communities to discuss priorities for the HLM on NCDs.
(...) NCDA CEO Katie Dain calls decidedly for more commitment: "We have had enough. Enough of your lack of urgency. Enough of your pitiful investments. Enough of your shirking responsibility. You need be on the money to bend the curve on NCDs. And that means grasping the opportunity of the HLM, and going beyond the generic language previously agreed on financing to make concrete, tangible commitments.” (Photo: Pan American Health Organization PAHO/flickr, CC BY-NC 2.0)
