The International Non Communicable Diseases (NCD) Alliance, on the 15th of November at Sharjah, expresses the commitment of NCD civil society organizations to join forces and work together, to accelerate action in advocating for change, to increase accountability by monitoring progress, and calls on governments and policy makers to take several steps to improve NCD prevention and control, including palliative care.

Pallium India is privileged to have played a part in the process. The Sharjah Declaration concludes with the statement, No one sector alone will reverse the NCD epidemic, but working together we have the tremendous opportunity to chart a new course towards health and sustainable human development for a more equitable and healthier future for all.
