UICC has partnered with the International Diabetes Federation, the World Heart Federation and International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) to form the NCD Alliance. Together with other major international NGO partners, the NCD Alliance unites a network of over 2,000 civil society organizations in more than 170 countries. The mission of the NCD Alliance is to combat the NCD epidemic by putting health at the centre of all policies.
The NCD Alliance uses targeted advocacy and outreach to ensure that NCDs are recognised as a major cause of poverty, a barrier to economic development and a global emergency. This is done by working with a wide range of partners and organisations, speaking with a united voice at international meetings, mobilising the 2000 organisations on our network, producing the latest policy work on NCDs and building the evidence base, convening expert working groups on a range of topics, and pressing governments to recognise that NCDs are a global development priority requiring an urgent response.
The NCD Alliance works with many partners that share a common interest in improving the lives of people living with NCDs and addressing their risk factors.
