Launch of the Global Mapping Report on Multisectoral Actions & Global Week of Action on NCDs

World Health Organization | 14 Sep 2023

Today marks the launch of this year’s Global Week for Action on NCDs, a yearly campaign aimed at slowing the increasing burden of NCDs with contributions of people everywhere. Actions can be big or small - the power of the Global Week for Action comes through collaboration across countries and sectors towards a common goal: reducing preventable death and illness and increasing health and equity around the world.

This year’s campaign is all about communicating that the moment for caring is now, and ensuring that everyone has access to essential, affordable health services as we strive to attain Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
