The Defeat-NCD Partnership is hosting a high-level panel discussion at the World Health Summit, which will bring Health Ministers from Rwanda and Myanmar together with multi-sectoral leaders from the African Union Commission, Boehringer Ingelheim, and the World Health Organization to reflect on practical solutions to bridge the trillion-dollar funding gap and find creative ways to bring about better health outcomes for NCDs.

The workshop aims to provide a clear path to ‘build back better’ through COVID-19 response and recovery plans by highlighting corrective actions that can be taken to increase prevention and reduce underlying risk factors; identifying innovative structured financial products to support the mobilisation of funding; and charting a path to create a competitive and fair global market where low- and middle-income countries can access quality and fairer priced NCD drugs, diagnostics and medical devices, in order to achieve transformative universal health coverage for all.

With a focus on tackling non-communicable diseases (NCDs), against the backdrop of COVID-19, the high-level session moderated by journalist Juliette Foster features 22 panelists and speakers representing governments, multilateral institutions, development banks, humanitarian organisations, academia, philanthropic foundations and private companies.

Representatives from the public and private sectors with an interest in achieving sustainable development goal 3.4.
