The fourth webinar in our series NCD Voices in the Decade of Action focused on Bridging the Gap – Integrating Mental Health Conditions and NCDs in a Build Back Better Response.

This webinar continues with the ethos of pass the mic, where we aim to highlight initiatives and perspectives that often go unheard. Leading up to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, there are less than 10 years to reach the targets and now more than ever we must make sure we leave no one behind. This webinar aims to support communication and knowledge sharing, with a strong emphasis on lived experience around the subject matter.
