Commitment to Action

Addressing Gaps In Policy And Research For NCDs

Commitment by

Rabin Martin

In 2012, Rabin Martin committed to build a global advocacy program around a set of policy papers that explore gaps in health policy, research, and practice that must be eliminated in order to address the growing global burden of non-communicable diseases effectively and sustainably. Non-communicable diseases, mainly cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes, and chronic lung diseases, are the leading global causes of death. Through this commitment, Rabin Martin disseminated the policy papers through events and policy dialogues with the goals of expanding understanding of how the private sector can bring its expertise and resources to bear on the prevention and control of NCDs in emerging markets and developing countries as part of a whole-of-society approach, and catalyzing wide-ranging policy dialogues that lead to the adoption of new approaches by key global health institutions and national governments.
