The Our Views, Our Voices initiative promotes the meaningful involvement of people living with noncommunicable diseases in the NCD response by supporting and enabling individuals to share their views in order to take action and drive change.
An initiative of the NCD Alliance and people living with NCDs, it seeks to advance the rights of people living with NCDs and combat stigma and discrimination.
The Advocacy Agenda of People Living with NCDs is a living document that highlights the priorities of people living with NCDs to guide and inform efforts to improve NCD prevention and control.
The Advocacy Agenda of People Living with NCDs was built with the generous contributions of 1,893 people living with NCDs who took part in the Our Views, Our Voices consultation efforts. It serves as a compass for the NCD community to advocate for improvements in NCD prevention and control globally.
We need to unite our voices and call on governments, private sectors and civil society to support the creation of enabling environments. This can be achieved through access to knowledge and the provision of resources and skills needed to meet the unique needs of various communities.
