The NCD Charter

The East Africa civil society NCD charter was also launched on June 13-15 in Entebbe Uganda as a result of the discussions on the results of the Benchmark Survey. The Charter highlights low progress on NCDs in the region and the need for urgent action. Drawing from a repertoire of international commitments and declarations on health and NCDs in particular, it represents a Statement of shared aspiration outlining a vision of what needs to be achieved in addressing NCDs in the region.
