Rwanda NCD Alliance in collaboration with the Ministry of Health/Rwanda Biomedical Center under the support of the NCD Alliance Global will host the first-ever National NCD Conference on the 25-26th November 2021 at Lemigo Hotel, Kigali-Rwanda.

This year themed “Multi-sectoral Collaboration for NCDs and UHC” has been inspired by the findings from the National NCDs situation analysis conducted by Rwanda NCD Alliance in collaboration with RBC which witnessed the level of involvement of stakeholders in the NCDs response and the United Nations (UN) in its global plan for Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 emphasizing on the country’s efforts to prevent and treat NCDs for the reduction of premature mortality by one-third by 2030. It is also being undertaken to facilitate and promote further understanding of each sectoral participation on NCDs and UHC.

However, facilitating the advocacy efforts is making sure that no one is left behind as far as the NCDs response is concerned. It will also be a great step towards the implementation of the National Strategy and Costed Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in Rwanda, 2020-2025 recently launched.  

Furthermore, the conference will contribute to increasing comprehensive and multisectoral commitments and call to action for NCDs, harnessing meaningful involvement of people living with NCDs in addressing their health challenges, and louder their voices.

The main topics include the burden of NCDs, effective cross-sector interventions of UHC for NCDs, channeling the voice of people living with NCDs, convergence of NCDs and communicable diseases, WHO Best Buys, global megatrends and NCDs, and alternative financing for NCD program. 

 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, participation will be in-person (invitation-based) and virtual (online registration-based) and the whole event will be live-streamed on the YouTube channel and social media platforms of Rwanda NCD Alliance.
