The Our Views, Our Voices initiative promotes the meaningful involvement of people living with noncommunicable diseases in the NCD response by supporting and enabling individuals to share their views in order to take action and drive change.
An initiative of the NCD Alliance and people living with NCDs, it seeks to advance the rights of people living with NCDs and combat stigma and discrimination.
Our Views, Our Voices is guided by a Global Advisory Committee of recognised advocacy experts with lived experience. This is the Global Advisory Committee role for the tenure of April 2022 – December 2023.
National Advocacy Agendas
NCD alliances in India, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Mexico, Malaysia, Ghana, Vietnam and Kenya mobilise people living with NCDs in their countries to develop national Advocacy Agendas of People Living with NCDs.
The Advocacy Agenda of People Living with NCDs is a living document that highlights the priorities of people living with NCDs to guide and inform efforts to improve NCD prevention and control.
The Advocacy Agenda of People Living with NCDs was built with the generous contributions of 1,893 people living with NCDs who took part in the Our Views, Our Voices consultation efforts. It serves as a compass for the NCD community to advocate for improvements in NCD prevention and control globally.
