The programme aims to contribute to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 3 on health and well-being, more specifically target 3.4 that has also been chosen as our development goal. In short we aim to develop the capacity of NCD Alliances (patient organizations) in East Africa to be sustainable and independent alliances with the ability to mobilize adequate and sustainable financial and human resources for NCD prevention and control and to effectively influence NCD prevention and control policies at all political levels. Our advocacy work is underpinned by the recognition that NCD-related issues are also urgent economic and social justice issues of our generation. We work for and with People Living with NCDs and we demand their meaningful involvement.
