ACC efforts lead to passage of landmark global NCD targets by WHO

11/19/2012

The World Health Organization recently established nine health targets designed to combat non-communicable diseases worldwide. These targets include salt intake, alcohol consumption, tobacco use, physical inactivity, diabetes/obesity, blood pressure control, and improvements on drug therapy to prevent heart disease and stroke. The passage of these targets follows the declaration of the need for global control and prevention of NCDs at the first ever United Nations Summit on NCDs last September. The ACC has played a pivotal role in the development of a plan for the global campaign to combat NCDs. Learn more about the targets and the ACC’s efforts.
