2023 Global Week for Action on NCDs - THE MOMENT FOR CARING

15 September 2023

September 14 marked the start of the 2023 Global Week for Action on NCDs!

In the lead-up to the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage (UHC), IDF Europe joins the Act on NCDs campaign’s call on governments, ministers of finance and health, donors, international agencies and the private sector to accelerate progress on the implementation of NCD prevention and care policy and to achieve UHC.

With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, world leaders have committed to implementing UHC by 2030. However, inequalities in access to healthcare services for people living with, or at risk of, developing NCDs such as diabetes are preventing the achievement of UHC.

Read our publication to learn more about the four top priorities of the NCD community for achieving UHC and their relevance for people living with diabetes:

  • ACCELERATE efforts
  • ALIGN policies
  • ENGAGE people with lived experience
  • INVEST resources efficiently
