Development of a WHO global action plan for the prevention and control of NCDs 2013-2020

Second informal consultation

Zero draft WHO global action plan for the prevention and control of NCDs covering the period 2013 to 2020

In response to paragraph 3.4 of World Health Assembly resolution WHA64.11 and paragraph 2.4 of Executive Board resolution EB130.R7, requesting the WHO Director-General to develop a WHO global action plan for the prevention and control of NCDs covering the period 2013-2020, the WHO Secretariat has prepared a Zero Draft Action Plan for discussion during the Second informal consultation with Member States and UN Agencies on the same topic, which will be convened on 1 November 2012 at the WHO Executive Board Room in Geneva.

The Zero Draft Action Plan was prepared based on the outcomes of the first informal consultation with Member States and UN agencies which took place on 16-17 August 2012, including the comments received from Member States, UN agencies, and the reviews from relevant NGOs and selected private sector entities during a web-based consultation conducted between 26 July 2012 and 7 September 2012.

The consultative process to date is as follows:

  • The WHO Secretariat published a WHO Discussion Paper on 26 July 2012. Member States and UN Agencies were invited to share their comments in response to the WHO Discussion Paper during the first informal consultation on 16-17 August 2012 and/or by participating in a web-based consultation from 26 July 2012 to 7 September 2012. Relevant NGOs and selected private sector entities were invited to share their views as part of the web-based consultation.
  • A first informal consultation with Member States and UN Agencies was held on 16-17 August 2012 in Geneva.
  • The outcomes of the first informal consultation served as an input for the WHO Secretariat to prepare a ‘Zero Draft’ Action Plan, for discussion at a second informal consultation for Member States and UN Agencies to be held on 1 November 2012 in the Executive Board Room at WHO headquarters.
  • Member States and UN Agencies are invited to share their comments in response to the ‘Zero Draft’ Action Plan during the second informal consultation on 1 November 2012 and/or by sending an email before 1 November 2012 to ncdactionplan@who.int. Relevant NGOs and selected private sector entities are invited to share their views before 1 November 2012 using the same email address.
  • The outcome of the second informal consultation on 1 November 2012 will serve as an input for the WHO Secretariat to prepare a ‘First Draft’ Action Plan for submission to Executive Board in January 2013.
