WHO WE ARE
" to put NCDs firmly on the political agenda, by joining forces with those working on NCDs and their risk factors to build a platform for collaborative advocacy and a common agenda to accelerate action and mobilise resources necessary to prevent and control NCDs among the Cambodian population. "
To prevent and reduce death and suffering due to non-communicable diseases among the Cambodian population
The Cambodian NCD Alliance was established late in 2018 and officially launched in March 2019 to call for greater action to tackle NCD prevention and control. CNCDA was formed by four founding members – Louvain Cooperation, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), MoPoTsyo, and the World Health Organization (WHO) in Cambodia.
The CNCDA is an informal alliance operating in Cambodia, based in Phnom Penh. CNCDA has a Coordinator, a steering committee and a growing membership base.
The CNCDA is governed by a steering committee. There are 10 steering committee members including 5 CSOs, 3 government departments – the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and National AIDS Authority, GIZ and WHO.
The role of the Steering Committee is to oversee and guide the direction and development of the CNCDA and make contributions to CNCDA activities where appropriate.
Membership of the CNCDA represents civil society, bilateral and multilateral agencies, academia, researchers, relevant ministries and government agencies, patient groups and people living with NCDs who share in the purpose of the CNCDA.
There are currently 22 members of the CNCDA since our official launch in March 2019. You can find out more about our members here.
Membership is open to all non-government and government organisations and representatives who meet the membership criteria of the CNCDA. Our Terms of Reference can be found here for more information.
The CNCDA works in partnership with the Royal Government of Cambodia and supports the Government to achieve national targets on NCDs and implement the National Multisectoral Action Plan on NCDs, 2018-27. This broad engagement reflects the purpose of the Cambodian NCD Alliance, which is to advance multisectoral action.
The CNCDA is a full member of the global NCD Alliance.
