Global Week for Action on NCDs

Together, let’s ACT on NCDs.

The annual Global Week for Action on NCDs seeks to ensure NCD prevention and care get the attention and action they deserve, everywhere, for everyone.

Join the movement

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancers, diabetes, mental health conditions and many others, affect us all. They cause nearly 3 out of 4 deaths globally - and billions of people live with one or more NCDs, many of which are preventable.


But we can all do something to turn the tide.
Join the movement. Mobilise. Demand action. Act on NCDs.



People. Participation. Progress.

In 2021, we are celebrating the power and potential of communities to co-create healthier societies.


COMMUNITIES power governments. Participation is essential to ensure and accelerate progress on NCD prevention and care in a way that upholds the right to health and leaves no one behind.


YOU have the right to be heard and participate in all aspects of society, including health. Governments must ensure communities are at the heart of decision-making processes.

GOVERNMENTS and communities can build healthier societies together. YOU can drive change by reaching out to others, participating in decision making, sharing stories, calling out injustice, and collaborating.
