EAP urges for action on NCDs with Global Week for Action on NCDs social media campaign
In early September, EAP took to social media to voice the need to better support children and young people affected by Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). EAP representatives shared their messages on the need for concerted and multisectoral actions to tackle NCDs and their risk factors.
In addition to the social media campaign, Young EAP Members and EAP’s Executive Director Stefano Del Torso penned a special article on EPHA’s website, in which they analysed the main NCDs causes and urged the EU to tackle the burden of NCDs from an early age.
This initiative was carried out in support of the Global Week for Action on NCDs, a worldwide event spearheaded by the NCD Alliance and featuring health actors such as EPHA, ahead of the UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs.
