WHAT IS NCD CHILD?

NCD Child is a global multi-stakeholder coalition, championing the rights and needs of children, adolescents and youth who are living with, at risk of developing or affected by NCDs.

NCD CHILD VISION & MISSION 

NCD Child works together with other partners to ensure that issues related to NCDs, children, adolescents and youth are equitably addressed and prioritised in global and national health policy and development agendas.

We actively engage and collaborate with governments, foundations, multilateral and non-governmental organisations, civil society, the private sector, academic and research institutions to promote awareness, knowledge, experience and resource sharing on children, adolescents, youth and NCDs.

NCD Child is committed to the prevention of NCDs in children and adolescents, and to the treatment and palliation, care and support, protection and participation of children and adolescents affected by NCDs throughout the life-course. We support policies and initiatives that minimise preventable death and disability, including rehabilitation. This includes a focus on the social determinants of health, as well as relevant behavioural interventions. NCD Child works to ensure that the rights of children, adolescents and youth are fully integrated in global NCD, health and development agendas.
