By UN General Assembly resolution 68/300 of 10 July 2014, the General Assembly decided to hold a comprehensive review in 2018 of the progress achieved in the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which will be the third high-level meeting of the UNGA on the issue. In January 2018 UNGA President Miroslav Lajcak appointed Sebastiano Cardi, Permanent Representative of Italy, and Elbio Rosselli, Permanent Representative of Uruguay, to co-facilitate open, transparent and inclusive consultations in preparation for the comprehensive review.
Informal consultations took place in March 2018 on the modalities for the review meeting. A final draft of the resolution was circulated under the silence procedure on 28 March, indicating agreement to hold the review on the third day of the general debate for UNGA 73, which is 27 September 2018.
