Abstract

Highlights

  • We propose a central platform for catalyzing actions to address noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).
  • A global NCD business plan would guide investments in interventions.
  • A young professional NCD network would implement and evaluate actions.
  • A global action center would steward public, private, and civil society actions.
  • A learning laboratory would translate data into high-impact projects.
