The goal of the regional NCD programme is to reduce preventable morbidity, avoidable disability and premature mortality due to NCDs in the South-East Asia Region. To achieve this goal, a draft regional action plan has been developed. The regional action plan is guided by a set of principles and lists priority actions along four strategic action areas:
Strategic Action Area 1: Advocacy, partnerships, and leadership Strategic Action Area 2: Health promotion and risk reduction Strategic Action Area 3: Health system strengthening for early detection and management of NCDs and their risk factors Strategic Action Area 4: Surveillance, Monitoring and Evaluation and Research Implementation of these priority actions by Member States, WHO and other partners should lead to achievement of the global and regional voluntary targets by 2025.
