Resume:

Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs), kræft, diabetes, hjerte- og lungesygdomme er verdens største dræber og skyld i 60% af dødsfald (35 millioner) årligt, 80% i de fattigste lande. De er en alvorlig trussel mod udviklingen. De kan forebygges igennem en indsats mod risikofaktorerne tobak, alkohol, fejlernæring og manglende motion. NCD Alliancer fra Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Rwanda og Burundi har slået sig sammen i et fællesskab med den Danske og den globale NCD Alliance og Aarhus, Yale, Southern California og Aga Khan Kenya universiteterne for at styrke deres kapacitet til politisk interessevaretagelse og for at gennemføre fælles politiske indsatser. Initiativet indebærer 4 kapacitets workshops, et multistakeholdermøde for regeringer, NGOer, virksomheder m.fl., monitorering af landenes indsatser og politikudvikling. Den politiske indsats er global, regional og national i både syd og nord.
