Advocacy

To ensure a continuum of care for NCD prevention, treatment, rehabilitative and palliative services are accessible, available and acceptable

A successful prevention and control of the epidemic of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) cannot be achieved by the health sector alone: a wide range of organisations from multiple sectors and across government must also be involved.

A two-pronged approach is essential to growing awareness and advocacy for NCDs prevention and control at both the governmental and community levels, and this requires a new, inclusive approach to advocacy and to coordinating, convening and catalysing action across civil society, best achieved by a broad-based network for ensuring it’s prioritization alongside other diseases with significant initiatives in partnership with the government of Kenya and other stakeholders, as guided by the Kenya National Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases(2015 – 2020) of the Ministry of Health, and other relevant frameworks(national, regional and global). The United Nations (UN) recognises that the prevention and control of NCDs cannot be achieved without taking a ‘whole-of-society approach.

While the term ‘NCDs’ covers a wide range of conditions, many share common drivers and solutions: uniting around a common agenda strengthens the case for action on all NCDs.
