Abstract

This short comment identifies priorities for supporting the use of law and regulation by national governments, following the United Nations High-level meeting on the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), in September 2011. It points out that legal and regulatory actions by governments will be needed for successful implementation of the priority interventions identified by the World Health Organization, and others, in the lead-up to this meeting. It identifies three priorities for international-level leadership in public health law in response to the NCD crisis.

Keywords: non-communicable diseases, public health law, global health governance, regulation
