/ UN Task Force on NCDs
United Nations Interagency Task Force on NCDs (UNIATF)
Countries can reduce the staggering burden of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), and save and generate resources for health and other services, by investing in measures to prevent and treat conditions like heart and lung disease, cancer and diabetes.
The UN Interagency Task Force on NCDs, co-led by WHO and UNDP, is conducting investment cases in countries to demonstrate the massive costs associated with NCDs and cost-effective measures that can be taken to promote health and reduce human suffering and economic losses from these diseases.
