Global NCD Alliance Forum in Sharjah

A panel of five globally recognised healthcare and welfare experts have been telling hundreds of delegates at the second Global Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) Alliance Forum in Sharjah that there is a vital need to share resources, information and understanding across all sectors in order to achieve the best results for the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

The forum took place on December 09 – 12, at the Al Jawaher Reception and Convention Centre, where Anders Nordström, ambassador, global health, UN policy department, told the delegates that increasing life expectancy was not enough of an achievement and that people needed to stay healthy in their later years.
