ISN represented at the Global Noncommmunicable Disease Alliance Forum

The third Global Noncommunicable Diseases Alliance (NCDA) Forum is being held in Sharja, UAE, from February 9 to 11, 2020. ISN, a partner of the NCDA, joined the Forum to represent kidney diseases worldwide.

The theme of the Forum was “Bridging the Gap” and focused on ways to accelerate the translation of political commitment into action, especially in light of the Political Declaration on NCDs (2018) and UHC (2019).

On February 10, ISN Advocacy Director Luisa Strani opened the workshop, “Building coalitions and social movements to address NCD multi-morbidities: Health systems for people, not siloes for diseases,” and moderated the discussion on the opportunities and challenges of developing an integrated approach to NCDs.

The ISN is a strong advocate of an integrated and people-centered approach to care, both key elements in reducing the multi-morbidity burden of kidney diseases and to achieve Universal Health coverage (UHC).
