Healthy Women, Healthy Livelihoods: Delivering an Integrated NCD Response for All
March 15, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Organized by Permanent Mission od Denmark, NCD Alliance, Women Deliver, Management Sciences for Health, Novo Nordisk
Women and children in low- and middle-income countries often bear a triple burden of ill-health related to pregnancy and childbirth, communicable diseases, and NCDs. Precious gains in maternal and child health could be lost due to the rapid rise of NCDs worldwide. CSW61 provides an opportunity to reflect on the linkages between women’s health, NCDs, and livelihoods. This event, held in the margins of the 61st Session of the Commission on the Status of Women, will focus on the tangible results of successful delivery of joint treatment and care. It will also be an opportunity to advance the need to act in multi-sectoral partnerships for NCDs and women’s health.
