The WHO global coordination mechanism on noncommunicable diseases (GCM/NCD) was created in 2014 by the World Health Assembly to provide a platform for exchange and coordination between the 194 Member States, the United Nations organizations and to date, more than
200 non-State actors to federate actions around a collaborative program aimed at meeting the NCDrelated targets of the Sustainable Development
Goals and to reduce the premature mortality attributable to these diseases. This mechanism has five functions: advocating and raising awareness,
disseminating knowledge and information, encouraging innovation and identifying barriers, advancing multisectoral action, advocating for
mobilization of resources.
