#EnoughNCDs #BeatNCDs campaign

8 August, 2018

Dear HIFA Members

Hope you are doing well.

Please refer to letter here (http://www.globalmentalhealth.org/sites/default/files/uploads/docs/SAFMH...) on behalf of the WHO Civil Society Working Group on the third High-level Meeting of the UN General Assembly on NCDs.

We will very much appreciate your involvement, support and assistance to disseminate the content of the letter among your own networks at community, country and international levels, so as to mobilise a strong advocacy and awareness drive around the issues pertaining to the NCDs and mental health, leading up to the High-level Meeting of the UN General Assembly on NCDs in September 2018. However, we hope to establish an ongoing partnership beyond the High-level meeting to maintain momentum and ensuring that countries achieve the SGD goals relating to NCDs and mental health.

Keep well

Kind regards,

Charlene Sunkel
