As a COVID-19 shaped spotlight was shone on NCDs in 2020, national and regional NCD alliances mobilised communities, engaged local authorities and civil society, raised awareness, and demanded action on NCDs, while drawing attention to the particularly disruptive impact COVID-19 has had on people living with* NCDs.

Ten member alliances in Africa, the Americas, and Asia were awarded 2020 Act on NCDs Campaign Fuel awards for planning and implementing inspiring and effective campaigns that addressed accountability, and called for action on NCD commitments from governments, private sector and other stakeholders.
