The Global Week for Action on NCDs 2021 #ActOnNCDs

by Public Health Update


The Global Week for Action on NCDs aims to unite the NCD movement each year under a specific theme, concentrating our combined efforts with the aim of reducing the NCD burden globally and increasing health and equality. 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.


Each year from 2020 to 2025, the Global Week for Action of NCDs will raise awareness about NCDs while focusing on a specific theme. In 2021, we are uniting under the theme of community engagement – leveraging the power and potential of communities to co-create healthier societies. Join the movement and make a difference in your community and the world!

The theme for the Global Week for Action on NCDs (6-12 September 2021) is Community Engagement – celebrating the power and potential of communities to act together on NCDs and drive change.

Everyone has the right to participate in decision making, helping authorities to deepen their understanding of the needs of communities including people living with NCDs; identify gaps, explore and develop options in response to challenges, understand the impact of decisions on different people and groups; and balance inputs, perspectives and interests.
