This meeting is organised in collaboration with the Conflict and Health Research Group at King’s College London as part of the RCUK Research for Conflict in Health (R4HC)-MENA programme.
The growing burden of chronic disease in fragile states and humanitarian emergencies is impossible to ignore. Academic centres, multilateral agencies and service providers have started a great push for better solutions and a better understanding of non-communicable disease (NCDs) amongst the world’s most vulnerable populations. These joint international efforts to prevent, control and reduce the burden of NCDs are a step in the right direction. However, some questions remain around the quality of the evidence-base supporting interventions and the need for more concerted efforts to tackle this growing epidemic and their risk factors.
Join our innovative and prominent panel of researchers and practitioners and get involved in current thinking and action on non-communicable disease care and prevention in emergencies.
