The UN High-level Meeting on Non-communicable Diseases 19–20 September 2011 (the UN Summit) was a landmark in the global campaign to tackle one of the most significant health crises facing the world in the 21st Century. The Political Declaration of the Summit provides clear recognition by UN Member States of the scale of the epidemic, its impact on both human lives and achievement of development goals, as well as the inadequacy of the resources being applied. It also provides their commitments and timetable for action. The NCD Alliance, and its network of more than 2,000 organisations, leads the global civil society movement against preventable illness, disability and death from NCDs and has played a significant role in achieving this advance.
