WHO Independent High-Level Commission (IHLC) releases Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) Report
In preparation for the UN General Assembly’s third High-level Meeting on the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), which will take place on the 27th of September 2018 in New York, the WHO Independent High-Level Commission (IHLC) published its “NCDs – Time to Deliver” report on the 1st of June 2018.
In the document, the WHO Commission identifies “bold recommendations to enable countries to curb the world’s leading causes of death”. Although the focus is primarily on meeting the Sustainable Development Goal target 3.4 (reducing premature mortality from NCDs), the report analyses the impact of NCDs and of mental health problems on children and young people.
