The goal of the discussion paper is to assist Member States in their national efforts to achieve target 9 as outlined in the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of NCDs 2013-2020. “An 80% availability of the affordable basic technologies and essential medicines, including generics, required to treat major noncommunicable diseases in both public and private facilities.”  The paper describes some of the key bottlenecks Member States face, it presents ideas on how WHO and relevant stakeholders can support Member States to support national efforts and it provides questions to stimulate and elicit feedback in order to give input to WHO work, on how to support Member States to improve access to essential medicines and basic health technologies for NCDs.
