The NCD Action Network

The NCD Action Network is a civil society movement, increasing resources and inspiring action to address the global non-communicable disease (“NCD”) epidemic. (…) Recognizing the importance of mobilizing civic coalitions, leadership and heads of state to ensure a successful UN summit in September, the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network (YP-CDN) launched NCD Action as a social movement to inspire civic action around the world. (…) “We are a global alliance of students, professionals and concerned citizens committed to improving the health of communities worldwide by addressing the growing epidemic of NCDs. We believe that the world needs a social movement to drive political action for the prevention of NCDs.”
