Plenary Session 2

System approaches to address political economy of NCDs

BACKGROUND :

This plenary will address how various government sectors: trade, economic, education, labour and health can be mobilized, given their distinctive institutional and legal mandates, for a shared value in response to NCD through policy coherence and synergies. Active citizen and empowerment [and active citizen empowerment and meaningful civil society engagement] are critical in holding government actors and private corporate sector accountable and act for the interests of public. This can be accomplished by ethical conducts embraced by good governance, rule of law, accountability, transparency and management of conflict of interests, government regulatory capacities, and an intelligence system where institutional capacities are required to maximize power of evidence.
