The goal of the action plan is to reduce the preventable and avoidable burden of morbidity, mortality and disability due to NCDs by means of multi-sectoral collaboration and cooperation at national, regional and global levels, so populations reach the highest attainable standards of health and productivity at every age and NCDs are no longer a barrier to well-being or socioeconomic development.
