The Knowledge Action Portal on NCDs

Interaction, information, and inspiration for NCD prevention and control

Launched in 2018, the Knowledge Action Portal on NCDs (KAP) is an online knowledge repository and community platform focused on the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).

The KAP is designed as an inclusive, community-driven platform facilitating a coherent multisectoral and multistakeholder response to the global NCD epidemic. Connecting diverse stakeholders and actors at local, national and international levels, the KAP is a core tool for knowledge sharing and mutual learning, collaboration in digital communities of practice, and the uptake of evidence-based solutions, lessons learned, and best practices.

The KAP is hosted by WHO’s Global Coordination Mechanism on the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (WHO GCM/NCD), and additionally connects to the work of the Global NCD Platform (GNP) Department, the United Nations Interagency Task Force on the Prevention and Control of NCDs (UNIATF), and the GNP Director’s Office.
