The global epidemic of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) was recognized by the United Nations and is addressed by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. This review article describes the proceedings of the plenary session “SDGs and NCDs: Roadmap till 2030” of the first “World NCD Congress 2017” held at Chandigarh, India. The plenary session emphasized the need for political commitment to take up NCD agenda at the national level to prevent and reduce the premature NCD deaths. Establishing the national action plan and monitoring framework for prevention and control of NCDs are the major initial initiatives to implement the best buy NCD interventions. Primary prevention of four common and shared risk factors and health system strengthening are the important interventions to achieve the SDG goal 3.4. The implementation strategies at subnational level and engagement of sectors other than health on prevention and control of NCDs can be reviewed and further researched for effective implementation of the identified interventions.
