Resume:

EANCDA blev etableret som et løst netværk for NCD Alliancer i Østafrika i 2014 med fokus på regional og global advocacy. Netværket er blevet styrket igennem kapacitetsudvikling. I 2017 ansøgte netværket om en NGOgodkendelse. Projektet skal bidrage til organisatorisk udvikling og strategiudvikling for EANCDA. Samtidig vil EANCDA gennemføre målrettet advocacy for at styrke resultatet af FNs NCD højniveaumøde i 2018. Mødet er en enestående mulighed for at påvirke den globale og nationale indsats mod NCDs. En benchmark undersøgelse af implementering af FNs 2014 slutdokument og et charter udviklet i igangværende projekt er vigtige inputs. Advocacy vil blive gennemført i en vekselvirkning mellem national indsats, som indebærer en strategisk involvering af patienter og pårørende og en fokuseret indsats i FN, hvor der afholdes en side event under værtskab af Danmark, Kenya, Tanzania, EANCDA og DNCDA. Målet er styrket national og global prioritering.
