The Guidance Note builds on the commitments made by world leaders in 2011 and Ministers in 2014 to integrate measures to address NCDs into national development plans and policies, including UNDAFs, and to raise awareness about the national public health burden caused by NCDs and the relationship between NCDs, poverty and socio-economic development.

Accordingly, the Guidance Note highlights the importance of ensuring that governments make linkages between the prevention and control of NCDs and broader development issues, such as poverty, governance, universal health coverage and the wider social determinants of health. It sets out how governments can achieve health and development gains for NCDs much more readily by influencing public policies in sectors like finance, trade, urban development and education, than by making changes in health policies alone.  It also underlines the importance of governments adopting approaches to policy development that involve all parts of government and society when integrating NCDs into the UNDAF process.
