[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Heart disease and stroke, cancers, diabetes, and chronic respiratory diseases and other noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) cause tens of millions of deaths per year, the majority of which occur during the most productive years of life. NCDs reduce economic output and prevent people around the world from living lives of health and wellbeing.

Nine global NCD targets provide a vision for progress by 2025. The WHO Global NCD Action Plan 2013-2020
and other resources provide a roadmap of policies and interventions to realise this vision. When implemented, they will put countries on track to meet the commitments made on NCDs at the United Nations General Assembly in 2011 and 2014, and in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including target 3.4 to reduce premature NCD deaths. It also supports the commitments governments made at the 2nd International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) to act across sectors to improve nutrition and the food system.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_btn title=”Download Now” color=”primary” align=”center” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.sancda.org.za%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2017%2F07%2Fpolicy-brief-halt-obesity-1.pdf|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
