Each year the Task Force convenes a meeting in the margins of the high-level week of the United Nations General Assembly to enable Member States, the United Nations system, and development partners to review actions being taken forward to meet the NCD- and mental health related SDG targets and current challenges.

The topic of discussion is how to enhance the support that the Task Force members are providing to Member States, including mobilising resources for the Health4Life Fund.
