Foreign Affairs Examines History Of Negotiations On NCD Political Declaration

Foreign Affairs on Tuesday published an analysis examining the history of negotiations behind the political declaration approved on Monday by leaders attending the U.N. High-level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs).

“A hard look at the negotiations that made the meeting in New York possible is a study in the way politics, commerce, and science can combine to influence global health policy in a difficult economic climate. The question is whether an approach that favors partnership with industry over regulation and that kicks the can forward on monetary commitments and specific targets to reduce the toll of NCDs will end up making much of a difference,” the article states (Fink/Rabinowitz, 9/20).

The KFF Daily Global Health Policy Report summarized news and information on global health policy from hundreds of sources, from May 2009 through December 2020. All summaries are archived and available via search.
