As I expected, there is a lot of discussion this year about the importance of Non-Communicable Diseases and how they should be address by the Global Health apparatus. This fall, the United Nations General Assembly will be hosting a “high level” meeting on them this fall in New York. CSIS is running a contest for you to have your say. Do you have anything interesting to say on this? If so, you can enter their blog contest to voice your opinion. The deadline is March 15, 2011.
If you are looking for some background material, I recommend you have a look at these two excellent reports by J. Stephen Morrison, Devi Sridhar, and Peter Piot as well as this report from Rachel Nugent and Andrea Feigel at the Center for Global Development.Share on Facebook
