UN Interagency Task Force on NCDs works with Kyrgyzstan to reduce burden of noncommunicable diseases

The United Nations Interagency Task Force on the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) carried out a mission to Kyrgyzstan from 14 to 17 March 2016 to support the Government of Kyrgyzstan.

The mission was held to ensure the NCD-related targets set out in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were included in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in national development plans and policies, and to accelerate the implementation of national commitments on NCDs. These are included in the 2011 United Nations General Assembly Political Declaration on NCDs and the 2014 UN General Assembly Outcome Document on NCDs.
