The global monitoring framework for NCDs will track the implementation of the NCD action plan through monitoring and reporting on the attainment of the global targets in 2015-2020. The 25 indicators and the 9 voluntary global targets of the framework provide overall direction and the action plan provides a road map for reaching the targets.
