Title TIME TO ACT: The Global Emergency of Non-Communicable Diseases

On 19 May 2009, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), World Heart Federation (WHF) and International Union Against Cancer (UICC) held a joint event during the 62nd World Health Assembly. The three federations, speaking as the global voices for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, joined together to highlight the urgent need to take action against the global epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

This report contains a selection of quotes from the event and also features a variety of guest perspectives on the growing threat of NCDs.
