WHA meets in Geneva for crucial NCD discussions

The 66th session of the World Health Assembly (WHA), the world's highest health policy-setting body, is coming up next week.

From 20-28 May, health ministers from member states will convene in Geneva, marking the end of ongoing consultation processes and putting in place the strong foundations of a global NCD monitoring framework.

IDF will be present at WHA, convening and participating in side events, observing official sessions, and leading advocacy on diabetes. We will be broadcasting regular updates on major decisions throughout the week.

IDF will be distributing two brochures in Geneva on the Global Monitoring Framework and the Post-2015 development goals
