Global NCD Alliance Forum

In 2024, the Global NCD Alliance Forum is organised under the theme ‘Leadership on NCDs towards 2025 & beyond’, bringing together 650 delegates from around the world to strategize, coordinate and unite ahead of next year’s UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs.

The Global NCD Alliance Forum is NCDA’s flagship convening event, held every two years to unite the NCD movement to promote knowledge exchange, share good practice and strengthen capacity to advocate for the prevention and control of NCDs.

Co-hosted by the Rwanda NCD Alliance, in collaboration with the Rwanda Ministry of Health and the Rwanda Biomedical Centre, delegates are invited to Kigali, Rwanda. Dubbed the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda is well known for its beauty, but also as a beacon of progress on health and NCDs within the region and globally, trailblazing renowned Universal Health Coverage reforms.

Taking place over three days from 20 to 22 October, the Forum will feature an official programme alongside a rich agenda of cultural activities and awareness-raising initiatives, including the opportunity to experience Kigali Car Free Day.

The Forum aims to elevate global and regional awareness of NCDs, accelerate collective action, unite civil society, promote evidence-based practices, and amplify the voices of people living with NCDs, driving commitment to prioritise NCDs in health and sustainable development agendas.
