Who we are

NCD Alliance East Africa (EANCDA) was formed in 2014 as an informal network of the national Non-Communicable Diseases Alliances of East Africa. The goal was to create a strong Alliance of advocates to increase awareness and advocate for action against NCDs in East Africa.


Our Mission

To contribute to people-centered NCD prevention and control in East Africa and Africa through evidence-based advocacy and related interventions

Our Vision

An East African population that is free from Non-Communicable Diseases

What we Do

Our focus


We are ensuring that there is a full implementation of NCD policies in East Africa coupled with sufficient strategic planning for the prevention and control of NCDs in the region.

Capacity Building

In order to deliver the ambitious agenda of making NCDs a high development priority that transcends the health sector, EANCDA will undertake internal capacity building and resource mobilization.

Knowledge exchange

The success of our NCD advocacy work depends a lot on communication and sharing of knowledge and best practices. There is a huge information gap on NCDs among policymakers and communities, and indeed among advocates.


Our accountability strategy is twofold. A focus on internal management and operations of the EANCDA. Call upon duty bearers such as governments and multilateral organizations to account for their acts of omission or commission
