Will 2018 be the turning point?
At this, our first C3 International Breakfast Seminar of 2018, we are delighted to welcome Robert Beaglehole, who is a leader of the global work on NCD prevention. Robert is Emeritus Professor at the University of Auckland and Chair of the Lancet NCD Action Group and he will be talking about Making 2018 the turning point for NCDs.
This year sees the third UN High-level meeting on non-communicable diseases (NCDs), the first since the introduction of the Sustainable Development Goals, which have given more prominence to NCDs and their prevention than has ever been seen on the international stage. As global levels of obesity continue to rise and while too many people continue to die too young from heart and lung diseases, cancers and diabetes, what opportunities are there to really build on the momentum that we are seeing in the prevention of NCDs?
