WHO Global Coordination Mechanism on the Prevention and Control of NCDs

GCM/NCD activities

GCM/NCD activities include working groups, dialogues, Communities of Practice, webinars, events, and communications campaigns such as the Global Communications Campaign on NCDs.

Working Groups

Composed of leading technical experts nominated by Member States, the Working Groups meet regularly throughout the year to produce reports with actionable recommendations to accelerate implementation of national actions to combat NCDs.

Communication campaigns

These campaigns aim to raise awareness and demonstrate the feasibility of achieving the nine voluntary global NCD targets and the NCD-related targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.


Through these fora, key stakeholders discuss strategies aimed at helping countries to realize their political commitments, and supporting national efforts to develop and implement domestic solutions and mobilize resources to prevent premature deaths from NCDs.

Knowledge Hub

A knowledge portal to facilitate knowledge and resource sharing and a platform to engage and disseminate information about different aspects of and innovative solutions to address NCDs.
