21 Sep 2016

In his address to the 71st United Nations General Assembly, the president called on the global community to unify to tackle NCDs, the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. 

“NCDs may not be dealt with in isolation; from this seat we invite all countries, governments and peoples to form an alliance against non-communicable diseases. An alliance for a healthy life as wide, vigorous and dynamic as possible. And it is possible, not easy, but possible,” said President Vázquez.
