Dialogue meeting on policy coherence and noncommunicable diseases

18-20 October 2017, Uruguay

The Government of Uruguay and WHO will convene a global dialogue meeting from 18 to 20 October 2017 in Uruguay that will be co-chaired with another government along with the WHO Director-General.

The dialogue meeting will address ‘how governments can promote policy coherence between different spheres of policy-making that have a bearing on noncommunicable diseases’ as part of the GCM/NCD work plan 2016-17. It will offer a unique opportunity to interact with today’s foremost thinkers across multiple sectors and industries, and analyse the most effective NCD programmes and approaches to intersectoral collaboration.
