Community on Women and NCDs Launch


World Health Organization

05 Mar 2019

A seminar titled ‘Why Focus on Women and NCDs?’ marked the launch of the Community on Women and NCDs. This is a new Community facilitated by The George Institute for Global Health and will be hosted on the Knowledge Action Portal.  


The Community will promote gender equity and address the burden of disease facing women and girls through a life-course approach, which recognizes how health-related measures early in life can be indicators for health outcomes later on. A central aim of the Community is to facilitate knowledge exchange and dissemination among key stakeholders interested in promoting evidence-based, scalable best practices in implementing a life-course approach to women’s health and NCDs.  


You can find the webinar video recording below and we welcome you to join the ongoing discussion on the Communities discussions where the first virtual discussion will take place from today until the 15th March.
