Draft Action Plan on NCDs 2013-20

World Health Organization has approved a draft action plan containing a vision, principles and approaches, a goal, six objectives, and voluntary global targets to be achieved by 2025. The Jan 11 plan will go for consultation in March and finally submitted for approval at the WHF Assembly in May 2013.
