Web consultation on the Global Monitoring Framework for Noncommunicable Diseases




From 9 August to 21 September 2012 the WHO Regional Office for Europe organized a web consultation on the draft Global Monitoring Framework on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs). Member States were requested to update their responses to the 2010 Global NCD Capacity Survey in relation to surveillance of NCDs, to assess their capacity to disaggregate data by socio-economic groups, and to comment on political/strategic and technical issues related to the monitoring of NCDs. This report summarises the origins, process and main findings of a web consultation. Section 1 is intended as a summary of the main conclusions. Section 2 is a more detailed elaboration of the background, process, and results.
