LIVESTRONG, along with other NGO’s and partners, want non-communicable diseases (NCDs) recognized as a major cause of poverty, a barrier to economic development and a global emergency. One of the ways we are doing this is by taking part in multiple high level discussions at the United Nations. The outcomes of these discussions will provide an input to the preparatory process for the UN High-level Meeting on NCDs (New York, 19-20 September 2011).
The following webcast is one of those meetings. Our very own Chief of Staff, Morgan Binswanger, will moderate three roundtables today to discuss the scale of the NCD challenge, what is needed to enhance global cooperation and the national and local solutions to address NCD’s. We invite you to post your questions about our efforts in the comments section below.
