Health experts are convening to address non-communicable diseases, which have become the main causes of deaths and disability in Asia and the Pacific.  

More investments in health and innovative solutions against non-communicable diseases are needed and required. This forum will help countries address the growing burden of non-communicable diseases by discussing high-impact innovations and strategies, and how financing and other resources can be mobilized to support country-level and region-wide implementation. The conference will also provide opportunities for participants to share knowledge and exchange ideas about what works and what should be done to improve strategies against non-communicable diseases.
