About the GCM/NCD
The GCM/NCD is a global Member State-led coordinating and engagement platform, established in 2014 by the World Health Assembly to help counteract the growing global health threat of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).
What does the GCM/NCD do?
The GCM/NCD contributes to accelerating the implementation of the WHO Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases 2013-2020, and the NCD-related Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets by fostering high -level NCD commitments through multisectoral and multistakeholder engagement at local, national, regional and global levels.
The GCM/NCD connects and convenes a diverse group of more than 300 participants comprising WHO Member States, United Nations organizations and non-State actors around a shared goal to support countries to reduce premature mortality and unnecessary suffering from NCDs.
