[Comment] The NCDs Cooperative: a call to action

Over the past 20 years, decision makers have largely stood impotent as non-communicable diseases (NCDs) have exploded around the world. Without a dramatic change in strategy, this resounding collective failure will persist. As I travelled the globe as one of three nominees for the Director-General of WHO, I met with 191 country delegations, including heads of state, foreign ministers, and health ministers. The good news on NCDs is that policy makers have both an awareness of the problem and an appetite for change.
