The second Global NCD Alliance Forum took place 9th-11th December, 2017, in Sharjah, UAE. It provided a prime opportunity to unite and mobilise NCD civil society ahead of the 2018 UN High-level Meeting on NCDs.
It was timed to allow for strategic priority setting and advocacy planning for the 2018 UN HLM on NCDs.
The forum brought together representatives from NCD civil society from across the world, building links with multilaterals, international NGOs, select government representatives and NCD experts.
