Our Vision

Our vision is that of a world in which there is universal health coverage for NCDs. This is a direct contribution to the transformational 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to which all nations have subscribed.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enable and assist lower-income and lesser developed countries to scale-up sustained action against NCDs so that they can move forward on SDG 3 “ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages” and, more specifically, to achieve target 3.4 to “reduce, by one-third, premature mortality from NCDs by 2030″.  Accordingly, the priority focus of The Defeat-NCD Partnership is on the 49 least-developed and low-income countries with technical capacity building support also available to a further 43 lower- middle-income countries.
