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.

ADVOCACY AGENDA

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.

NCDs do not discriminate – they can affect anyone, anywhere – and account for 70% of all deaths globally. No measure of technical knowledge can replace the insight of the lived experience.

I would say that living with a chronic disease always has tradeoffs in terms of quality... The impact includes a low grade sense of dread that the NCD will require costly interventions but also the opportunity cost of making choices about health based on cost savings rather than health benefits.
