Event Details

The Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD), The All Party Parliamentary Group for Global Health (APPG-GH) and UCL's Institute for Global Health and Grand Challenges are holding a "question time" style debate:

Lord Nigel Crisp (host), Prof Anthony Costello (UCL, IGH) and panellists invite you to:

"THE NCD Time Bomb: Whose problem is it? (Leadership and Lessons learnt from HIV/AIDS.)

Whether your are a policy maker, global health professional, private sector professional with an interest in sustainable development, or student, we will discuss how Non Communicable Diseaeses (NCDs) can be reframed as a global development issue.

Historically thought to be diseases of wealthy countries like the US and UK, NCDs are now a world wide pandemic of devestating proportions, which account for more than 35 million deaths a year. 80% of those occur in low and middle-income countries.  - that's twice as many deaths as from infectious diseases HIV, malaria and TB combined.

Send your questions in advance to policy makers via twitter @gacd_media#gacdqt

Please arrive at the main entrance Portcullis House,  Houses of Parliament, 30 minutes before the event to complete security & bring this invitation with you.

The event will be held in the Atlee Suite, 1st Floor, Portcullis House.
