On October 10, the CSIS Global Health Policy Center and the Kaiser Family Foundation will co-host a public session focused on the outcomes of the UN General Assembly’s high-level meetings on ending tuberculosis (TB) and on the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). The meetings are taking place September 26 and 27, respectively, in New York, and are expected to draw high-level political attention. The September 26 meeting is focused on the future of global financing to accelerate efforts to end TB. The September 27 meeting on the prevention and control of NCDs will review global and national progress toward measures that will protect people against dying early from these diseases.
Our October 10th event will feature global health experts’ takeaways from the lead up to the meetings and the meetings themselves. For TB, they will focus on the future of global financing to accelerate efforts to end TB, reflections on the political declaration on TB to be endorsed by heads of state, and actions by the TB community to reach the ambitious goals of the End TB Strategy. For NCDs, they will discuss conclusions emerging from the review by Heads of State of progress achieved in reducing the risk of dying prematurely from NCDs, as well as an analysis of the status of collective efforts to accelerate global action.
