Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are a major burden on Europe’s people, healthcare budgets and economic development. To enable a systematic approach to tackle these largely preventable conditions, EPHA and ECDA, with its members and partners, have launched a process to call for the establishment of an EU strategic framework on NCDs towards 2030.
This paper, which will be aimed at the incoming European Commission and European Parliament following EU elections, proposes a set of basic principles, priorities and actions for such strategic framework.
