ABSTRACT
The authors relate the decision of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) for UN Resolution 64/265 to hold a High Level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases in September 2011. The meeting is said to be an unparalleled opportunity to put noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) on the global health and development agenda. The authors believe that the meeting can call the world's attention to cancer, diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, and chronic respiratory disease.
