The ANN shall ensure a people movement in Africa that supports the rights and needs of people living with NCDs. A rights approach will ensure a regional NCD response that leverages the power of lived experience and promotes the global charter on meaningful involvement of people living with NCDs. Thus, an African policy framework for the rights of people living with NCDs needs to be developed in partnership with national and other stakeholders. National, regional, and local level planning is important in identifying challenges and concerns of people living with NCDs in seeking to uphold their economic and health rights. In effect, policies relating to the institutionalization of rights of people living with NCDs into national and regional institutions and structures governing will be reviewed by the ANN to ensure harmony and synergy in the regional response.
