Launch of the Knowledge Action Portal

The WHO GCM/NCD is pleased to announce the official launch of the Knowledge Action Portal (KAP) – an interactive online platform for noncommunicable disease (NCD) information, interaction and inspiration. The KAP aims to create a community of connected individuals from various backgrounds and skill-sets to access knowledge and information, promote collaboration, and find the common goals to beat NCDs. The KAP is now live, and new users can sign up today and begin connecting with like-minded individuals.
The KAP is the first platform of its kind to highlight a range of NCD tools and information from across sectors. It provides users with access to a variety of campaigns, media, publications, and other resources in an accessible and easy-to-use format. In addition, the KAP is creating a social network through the utilization of connectivity algorithms, messaging functions, and personalized profiles. The KAP will have a phased approach to development, taking in a variety of feedback from users to guide future growth.
This is an exciting new chapter for the WHO GCM/NCD, and we very much look forward to engaging with users and to further develop the KAP community together.
