Led by moderator Shiulie Ghosh, this panel explored the lessons learned and success factors that communities across the world need to be aware of to form partnerships that make significant progress toward reducing premature deaths from NCDs. Speakers from government, industry, non-governmental organizations, research institutions and patient advocacy organizations participated to share their perspectives, including:

The panel fostered a lively conversation and concluded with a call-to-action for a coordinated global effort among stakeholders to address the full range of barriers to treatment and care, and to increase the availability of affordable cancer treatment and access to essential medicines.
