Founded in 2009, the NCD Alliance has developed a robust global network of more than 2,000 organisations in 170 countries. This includes global and national NGOs, scientific and professional associations, academic and research institutions, private sector entities and dedicated individuals.
NCDA maintains strategic relations with the World Health Organization, UN and governments, and staff in Geneva, London and New York, putting it at the forefront of elevating noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) onto the global health and development agenda.
NCDA also leads on a variety of initiatives and in-depth tailored programmes to develop civil society capacity to deliver progress on NCD prevention and control.
In May 2017, the NCD Alliance transitioned to become a full-fledged NGO, based in Switzerland.
