Why Knowledge Action Portal?
The Knowledge Action Portal (KAP) is a flagship online community-driven platform launched by the WHO Global Coordination Mechanism on the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (WHO GCM/NCD). The KAP presents users with an innovative way to enhance global understanding, interaction, and engagement across sectors for the purpose of fulfilling existing - and initiating new - commitments to noncommunicable disease (NCD) prevention and control.
In addition to serving as a reputable resource for users to access NCD information across sectors, the KAP will connect users through an attractive and easily accessible layout featuring seamless usability. The KAP is the first community-driven interactive online for NCD interaction, information, and inspiration.
With engagement built in throughout, the KAP acts as a social network for the NCD community, providing a safe space for engaging conversations with like-minded individuals from diverse backgrounds to connect individuals within the NCD community, while bringing new perspectives into the space.
Finally, the KAP is a curated information service and engagement platform, created for and with those wishing to find the common goals to beat NCDs.
