The Defeat-NCD Partnership was established in January 2018 to help tackle the most significant global health problem of the age: premature death, sickness, disability, and the associated social and economic impacts of selected non-communicable diseases (NCDs). These are projected to cost tens of billions of dollars with the most adverse consequences falling upon the poorer countries and communities.

D-NCD vision is that of a world in which there is universal health coverage for NCDs. This is a direct contribution to the transformational 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to which all nations subscribe.

D-NCD mission is to enable and assist the approximately 100 lower-income and lesser-developed countries to scale-up sustained action against NCDs so that they can progress SDG 3 on ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages and, more specifically, to achieve target 3.4 to reduce, by one-third, premature mortality from NCDs by 2030.  D-NCD initial focus is on diabetes and hypertension with expansion to other NCDs in due course probably starting with the early detection and treatment of cervical and breast cancer.

D-NCD is a ‘public-private-people’ Partnership that is an autonomous inclusive programme of the United Nations system. D-NCD membership and governance include governments, multilateral agencies, civil society, academia, philanthropic foundations, and the business sector.  D-NCD subscribes to the ethical principles of the United Nations Global Compact. D-NCD follows the technical norms and guidance issued by the World Health Organization. D-NCD operating procedures derive from United Nations rules but are designed to be fast and responsive. D-NCD works in a complementary and coordinated way with other health and development actors at all levels.

The D-NCD Partnership is hosted by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). The secretariat of the D-NCD Partnership is located in Geneva, Switzerland.


UNOPS supports the successful implementation of its partners' peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world.  UNOPS’ mission is to serve people in need by expanding the ability of the United Nations, governments and other partners to manage projects, infrastructure and procurement in a sustainable and efficient manner.

Working in some of the world's most challenging environments, UNOPS vision is to advance sustainable implementation practices, always satisfying or surpassing our partners' expectations. With over 7,000 personnel spread across 80 countries, UNOPS offers its partners the logistical, technical and management knowledge they need, wherever they need it.

A flexible structure and global reach means that UNOPS can quickly respond to our partners' needs, while offering the benefits of economies of scale.
