On 5 March 2021, Ambassador Maxim Yermalovich took part in the virtual meeting of the WHO Regional Directors Advisory Council on Innovation for Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs).
Noncommunicable diseases present a significant global challenge. Nearly 90 per cent of deaths and 84 per cent of years lived with disability in the WHO European Region are caused by NCDs. The WHO Regional Office for Europe is now redoubling its efforts to tackle this global problem.
The WHO Regional Director for Europe Mr Hans Kluge has established an NCD Advisory Council on Innovation for Noncommunicable Diseases. Ambassador Maxim Yermalovich accepted a proposal and joined the Council as a member.
The Council members presented a wide variety of suggestions for elements that would accelerate progress in tackling NCDs.
