This online event hosted by WHO's Global Coordination Mechanism on the Prevention and Control of NCDs (GCM/NCD) will mark the launch of the new Knowledge Action Portal on NCDs (KAP) and the consultative process on the draft engagement strategy for GCM Participants.
Relaunching the Knowledge Action Portal on NCDs – a dedicated tool for knowledge collaboration
Since 2018, the Knowledge Action Portal on NCDs (KAP) has been serving as the GCM/NCD’s main knowledge sharing and community platform dedicated to enhancing NCD prevention and control through multisectoral and multistakeholder collaboration. Following a major website redesign, a brand-new and improved version of the KAP is ready to be relaunched this spring, serving the GCM/NCD and its Participants as a novel platform to link key knowledge resources, share country action and impact stories on NCD prevention and control, promote events, host thematic communities of practice, or engage with fellow GCM/NCD Participants.
Co-designing how the GCM/NCD engages its Participants – the GCM engagement strategy
The GCM/NCD Secretariat has recently developed a draft engagement strategy, outlining the objectives, principles and modalities of engaging with its Participants, respective roles and responsibilities, and key benefits of collaborating within the mechanism. GCM Participants are invited to participate in a consultative process on the strategy. Their feedback will be used towards the co-design and implementation of the final strategy in line with the GCM’s current workplan for 2022-2025 (adopted in 2022 by WHO Member States).
