Objet : [procor] UN High-level Meeting draft outcome

The UN recently released its draft outcome document for the High-level
Meeting on NCDs in September. The document recognizes the global burden of
NCDs and outlines actions the UN will take in addressing the prevention and
control of NCDs. During the meeting in September, UN members will discuss
and then vote whether to approve the document.

The document recognizes the need to take a "whole-of-government" and a
"whole-of-society" response, and lays out many action points. Some of which
include: establishing national policies and plans for the prevention and
control of NCDs; promoting the training of health workers; strengthening
health information systems; implementing cost-effective interventions;
implementing international agreements (such as the FCTC); and strengthening
partnerships and cooperation. Many more action steps are included in the
document, and on the surface appears to cover much of the NCD community's
needs.

Are there other action steps the UN should be including in this document? Do
you think it's a strong enough statement to generate the kind of support
needed to tackle NCDs?
