UN Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) was held from September 19th to 20th 2011 at UN Headquaters in New York City. The NCD Summit focused on the four most prevalent non-communicable diseases, namely, cancers, cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, with the aim of reaching an agreement among member states on a global strategy to address NCDs.

ICCCPO, conferred with UN ECOSOC Special NGO Consultative Status, was invited to attend the UN NCD High-level Meeting and nominated two representatives, Edith Grynszpancholc and Benson Pau to attend the Meeting at the UN Headquarters in New York. Both of them actively participated in various strategic side events before and during the UN NCD Summit.
