Conference aims

WHO

There are 11 years left to reach the SDGs and to achieve target SDG 3.4 on NCDs, and thereby to save millions of lives. The Conference will build on the urgent need for action to save lives and create better health. It will focus on how to move forward at country level and scale up actions to achieve the target, and on sharing lessons learned to close the inequity gap between and within countries. The Conference will also address how to implement the new decisions made in the Political Declaration of the third United Nations High-level Meeting on NCDs, to include mental health and air pollution in the NCD agenda.
