The NCD Alliance in focusing on the burden of NCDs in children and call on:

The global community to:

  • Expect sustained and strong high-level public, private and political support for specific commitments that integrate child-specific, lifecourse considerations within NCD policies and actions
  • Empower and enable children and young people’s voices within decisions that affect them
  • Broadcast the message that the vast majority of children and youth with NCDs can, and should, live full and productive lives, free from stigma and shame
  • Identify ambitious child-specific targets and transparent reporting systemsto monitor progress on priority child-specific actions
