World Health Assembly Follow-Up: Letter to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services

 

Following the 66th World Health Assembly (WHA),  20 member organizations of the NCD Roundtable sent a letter dated June 20, 2013 to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services expressing their gratitude and support for the work of the US Delegation to the WHA. The US played a key leadership role in the adoption by the WHA of an omnibus resolution on NCDs, which incorporated significant goals and targets for NCDs, a multistakeholder approach and set a plan to develop a global coordinating mechanism for NCDs by the end of 2013.
