On 25 and 26 November 2010, government officials from across the European Region were brought together in Oslo, Norway at the UNDESA/WHO Regional High-level Consultation in the European Region on the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases to discuss and provide input to the preparations for the 2011 High Level Meeting convened by the United Nations General Assembly. We are now seeking comments from all stakeholders in Europe on the proceedings of the Consultation in the European Region on the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases.

The comments received will be used to influence the European contribution to the First Global Ministerial Conference on Healthy Lifestyles and Noncommunicable Disease Control to be held in Moscow 28-29 April 2011 and to the pre-meeting of European delegations to be held on 27th April 2011 also in Moscow.
