Monday 27 May, Geneva

The Fourth UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs and Mental Health (HLM4) in 2025 is a critical moment for governments to commit to action that will keep alive the ambition of achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2030 target 3.4 of reducing premature mortality from NCDs by 30% and promote mental health and well-being. Building upon the roundtable co-hosted by Access Accelerated (AA), NCD Alliance, the World Bank, and World Diabetes Foundation (WDF) on the side-lines of the HLM on UHC in September 2023, NCDA’s “shadow” Concept Note for the GFD2, NCDA’s 2024 publications (on fiscal policies, ODA flows, and NCD investment in G20 countries), the renewed Access Accelerated-World Bank partnership focused on improving financing for NCDs, and WDF’s ongoing and expanding work to improve financing and care for NCDs in LMICs, this event will look to contextualize political and policy aspirations for NCD/MH financing by highlighting interventions and concrete progress and discussing ideas for transferring or scaling these successful initiatives.

By focusing on the technical execution and rationale behind national and local decisions to invest in NCD/MH, this roundtable will present stakeholders with an opportunity to dig deeper into investment cases to understand the interplay of policy recommendations available to scale financing for health and NCD/MH. This round table has the opportunity to bring together governments, multilateral organizations, civil society, the private sector, and other stakeholders together with both the contents of the meeting as well as its organizers to learn about experiences on financing from a wide range of experts.
