NCDs, Young People and Decent Work
On 6 July 2012, NCD Child released their Issues Paper as part of a Ministerial Roundtable at the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Annual Ministerial Review. The Roundtable, organised jointly by UNICEF and PAHO in association with NCD Child focused on ‘Working Well! Safe- guarding adolescent and youth livelihood in the face of NCDs and their risk factors’. The paper explored the impact of NCDs on adolescent and young people’s participation in the workforce, the underlying risk factors and recommendations about policy decisions that would enable the prevention and mitigation of the impact of NCDs on young people’s capacity to enjoy their right to work.
