Western Pacific Regional Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases2014-2020
This regional plan calls for a systematic approach to Noncommunicable Diseases (NCD) prevention and control. It provides a road map and a menu of very cost-effective interventions for all Member States and other stakeholders to take coordinated and coherent action at all levels to attain the nine voluntary global targets by 2025. The plan emphasizes the control of NCD risk factors and promotes access to services in primary health-care facilities in a phased manner. It also recommends strengthening surveillance frameworks for NCDs. This regional plan will guide Western Pacific Member States to prioritize cost-effective interventions and to set national targets aligned to the global targets.
