This document contains a Regional Action Plan to operationalize the Global Action Plan for the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases, envisioning "a Region free of avoidable NCD deaths and disability." The action plan emphasizes on the need for a whole-of-government approach required for addressing NCD risk factors. The focus of the action plan is on practical, cost-effective and evidence-based interventions that Member States can adopt to achieve a reduction in NCD risk-factor prevalence and NCD mortality and morbidity.
