Who We Are

our history

In March 2012, an inaugural NCD Child Conference was co-convened by CLAN, the Public Health Institute and the Global Health Council, and the resulting Oakland Statement was approved.

Since that time, NCD Child has continued to establish itself as a leading voice for the rights of children and adolescents at risk of, living with and affected by NCDs through participation of global high-level events, development of evidence and policy publications, and building meaningful youth capacity in the NCD space.

our mission

The mission for NCD Child is to ensure that issues related to NCDs are addressed and prioritized in national, regional and global policies. Above all, these policies should center around children, adolescents, and young people.

Furthermore, we work to ensure the voices of young people and families are heard in all settings where policies, systems or programs are developed and implemented.
