NCD Alliance East Africa (EANCDA)

The NCD Alliance East Africa (EANCDA) was formed in 2014 as an informal network of the national Non-
Communicable Diseases Alliances of East Africa. The goal was to create a strong Alliance of advocates to
Increase awareness and advocate for action against NCDs in East Africa. The Alliance is organized in a
Cascading structure at two main levels; regional and national levels. The regional level is constituted by
The National Alliance of Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zanzibar. The national NCD
Alliances are in turn constituted by strong membership of different national societies and associations of
non-communicable diseases such as Cancer Societies, Diabetes Associations, Cardiovascular Disease
Associations, patients’ associations, and other civil society organizations working in the area of non-
Communicable diseases. The EANCDA is currently working to strengthen the institutional capacity of
NCD Alliances and regional NCD collaboration. At the same time, it is working to support governments,
regional institutions like the East African Community and WHO, Africa Region, and other NCD civil
Societies to increase regional response to NCDs.
