Collaboration. It’s one of our core beliefs. Only by bringing together different groups – especially those who don’t normally have an opportunity to meet – can we ever hope to tackle the rise of chronic diseases and identify realistic solutions to making it easier for people to live healthy lives.

Professor Srinath Reddy talks “NCDs: why do we know so much but do so little”

09 Dec 2022
Paige Cowan-Hall
C3 was joined by Professor Srinath Reddy, founder President of the Public Health Foundation of India, for our next international seminar. Professor Reddy is an Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology at Harvard. We discuss why and how we should effectively implement the knowledge we already have, to prevent and control NCDs. This requires a bidirectional relationship between knowledge and action. It requires multi-disciplinary collaboration and multi-stakeholder participation in the research process. Community engagement is pivotal. With NCDs being the leading cause of disability and death worldwide it begs the question with everything we know, why isn't more being done?
