FCA proposals for global action on NCDs
The World Health Organization is holding consultations on the commitments made in the UN Political Declaration issued at the High-level Meeting on the Prevention and Control of Non-communicable Diseases (NCDs) in September 2011, and on the development of the NCD Global Monitoring Framework and the Global Action Plan on NCDs (2013-2020).
Since a framework for multi-sectoral and comprehensive action on tobacco control exists – the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) – FCA calls for:
– Explicit recognition of the Convention, its Conference of the Parties (COP) and reporting instrument in all key global tools to prevent and control NCDs.
Deadline to submit recommendations on the Global Action Plan on NCDs (2013-2020) is 7 September 7, 2012. Civil society organisations are invited to submit their recommendations by sending an email to: email@example.com.
