Launch Conference for the Project on the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs)





The official launch of the NCD Project marked an important milestone in the commitment made by the Russian Federation in September of 2012 to host in Moscow a geographically dispersed office for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) – a Regional centre of excellence in the field of prevention and control of NCDs. The NCD Project will support Member States in areas such as: development and evaluation of national action plans for prevention and control of NCDs, data collection, surveillance and monitoring, inter-agency cooperation, and studies on social determinants of NCDs. Objectives and results of the Project would reflect the requests for support from Member States.
