Side-event on the occasion of the 73rd UN General Assembly and the Third UN High-level Meeting on NCDs.
This event will focus on urgent and bold actions that can be taken now by Heads of State and Government – not Ministers of Health only – to combat NCDs, and will provide a platform for political leaders to showcase what they are doing differently.
WHO and Uruguay will launch a new initiative to engage Heads of State and Government to fast traction for the prevention and control of NCDs until the Fourth UN High-level meeting on NCDs in 2025.
