July 30, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am EDT

Organized by NCD Alliance

Access to PHC for People Living With Multiple NCDs: Challenges and Opportunities

July 30, 2020


The NCD Alliance invites you to join its next webinar on Access to PHC for People Living With Multimorbid NCDs on Thursday, 30th July 2020, from 3.00 pm – 4.30 pm CEST.

 In this NCD Alliance thematic webinar, experts would present the latest data on multi-morbid NCDs, the implications for health systems, and the opportunities to address multi-morbidity from a global perspective. We will also hear from those leading the advocacy for a more inclusive NCDs agenda at the regional and country levels, including people living with multiple NCDs. The conversation will reinforce primary-health care’s (PHC) strategic positioning as the vital cog in provision of people-centred health care as well as the need to leverage existing care, social support and coordination mechanisms to meet the need.

Speakers include:

  • Mr Bruno Helman, “Our Views, Our Voices” Global Advisory Committee Member, Brazil
  • Ms Estefania Palomina, Program Officer, Helmsley Charity Trust
  • Prof Stephen MacMahon, Principal Director, The George Institute for Global Health and Chair of the Academy of Medical Sciences ‘Multimorbidity: a priority for global health research’ working group
  • Dr David Heller, Assistant Professor, practising internist and clinician investigator, Mount Sinai’s Arnhold Institute for Global Health
  • Ms Rachel Leach, Deputy Director of Data and Science, World Obesity Federation
