Global Noncommunicable Disease Programs
CDC collaborates with partners to enhance global health and economic security and reduce premature noncommunicable disease (NCD) deaths and disabilities. We produce scientific evidence, strengthen workforce capacity, and improve surveillance and evaluation systems. Our activities focus on promoting and supporting innovative, evidence-based interventions to prevent and control NCDs. We align our efforts with global targets including the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the WHO Global Monitoring Framework.
