Ms Zsuzsanna Jakab and Mr Sergey Muraviev, Director of the Department of International Cooperation and Public Affairs, Ministry of Health, signing the agreement to establish an office in Moscow focusing on noncommunicable diseases.

In response to the growing demand for information products in Russian from the active health research community in Russian-speaking countries, it is important to increase the access to, and quantity and quality of scientific and technical content on noncommunicable diseases available in the Russian language. High-quality Russian translations of new and existing content posted on the NCD web pages of WHO/Europe's website are being made available. This will provide Russian-speaking countries with full access to WHO/Europe's latest publications to use in, for example, national tobacco control, nutrition and alcohol policies.

The NCD portal allows querying different integrated databases on NCDs, utilizing innovative and interactive data display visualizations and analysis, including quantitative and qualitative information, and is linked to the WHO Health Information and Evidence portal.
