CLAN (Caring & Living as Neighbours) commits to ongoing advocacy efforts and grassroots community development action on behalf of children and adolescents
Description/achievement of initiative

CLAN (Caring & Living as Neighbours) commits to ongoing advocacy efforts and grassroots community development action on behalf of children and adolescents, so as to protect and promote their international human rights to health, most particularly in the context of the unacceptably high burden of preventable disability and death caused by chronic health conditions and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in developing countries. Identifying children who are living with the same chronic health condition as members of a distinct community, CLAN utilizes a strategic framework for action (CLAN's 5 pillars) to engage a range of partners to work with these communities to help the children enjoy the highest quality of life possible. Using the September 2011 UN High Level Meeting (HLM) on NCDs as a springboard for future action, NCD Child (a project managed by CLAN) will collaborate with a range of stakeholders to run an international Conference on Children, Adolescents and NCDs in March 2012. The conference will focus on reviewing the UN HLM Political Declaration, and developing a comprehensive policy roadmap capable of guiding future international efforts to redress the many global inequities associated with NCDs and other chronic health conditions that currently impact on the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents.
