Target nine of the Global Action Plan
An 80% availability of the affordable basic technologies and essential medicines, including generics, required to treat major NCDs in both public and private facilities.
The "Global monitoring framework for NCDs" will track the implementation of the NCD action plan through monitoring and reporting on the attainment of the global targets in 2015-2020. The 25 indicators and the 9 voluntary global targets of the framework provide overall direction and the action plan provides a road map for reaching the targets in countries.
Toolbox: access to essential medicines and health technologies for NCDs
This toolbox contains relevant policy and technical documents (guidelines, norms and standards) to support countries to improve access to essential medicines and health technologies for Noncommunicable Diseases. It is structured to cover key components defined in the WHO Model Framework for Access to Essential Medicines and Health Technologies and key aspects for the Procurement and Supply Management of NCD medicines. Tools available should support greater availability of affordable quality-assured, safe and effective medicines and health technologies and their rational use in countries to achieve the set target.
The toolbox is created jointly by WHO Cluster for Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health and Essential Medicines and Health Products Department. It will be updated regularly as soon as new relevant publications are available.
