Situation and trends
Nearly 90% of countries reported the existence of partnerships or collaborations for implementing key NCD activities. Tobacco use and diabetes (84% and 81% respectively) were the areas most often covered by such partnerships.
Some of the mechanisms in operation for multi-sectoral collaboration were inter-departmental committees, ministerial committees, task forces, academia and nongovernmental/civil society bodies.
