Recognizing the importance of mobilizing civic coalitions, leadership and heads of state, the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network (YP-CDN) launched NCD Action as a social movement to inspire civic action around the world. The YP-CDN is kindly hosted by the Global Health Delivery Project, an organization dedicated to improving health through global collaboration.
