In 2016 there were 4 national NCDs civil society organisations in the AFRO region: Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia in addition to the regional East African NCD Alliance. The mapping exercise looked at:
- Describing the NCDs civil society action in the region looking at challenges, gaps, capacity needs, and opportunities.
- Outlining regional civil society areas of action and priorities for NCDs prevention and control.
- Exploring how key global NCDs stakeholders can support civil society action
