|Abstract:||Part A The WHO Regional Committee for South-East Asia (SEA) through resolution SEA/RC60/R4 on scaling up prevention and control of chronic noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) (Annex 1) endorsed the Regional Framework for Prevention and Control of NCDs and urged Member States to initiate appropriate steps to formulate, update and strengthen national policies, strategies and programmes and to establish suitable infrastructure and appropriate funding mechanisms for integrated prevention and control of NCDs. The resolution also requested the Regional Director to provide technical assistance to Member countries, and to mobilize necessary resources for developing the capacity to implement national policies, strategies and programmes for integrated prevention and control of NCDs, and to facilitate and coordinate international support of development partners. In addition, in May 2008, the Sixty-first World Health Assembly endorsed the Action Plan for the Global Strategy for the Prevention and Control of NCDs that set up six objectives and corresponding actions to be taken by Member States, the WHO Secretariat and international partners, for the period 2008-2013. The resolution SEA/RC60/R4 also requested the Regional Director to report to the Sixty-third session of the Regional Committee in 2010 on the progress achieved in implementing the Regional Framework. This document reports on the initial action undertaken by Member States and WHO, on implementation of the resolution and considers regional implications of the global NCD action plan 2008-2013.|
