Healthy Women, Healthy Livelihoods: Delivering an integrated NCD response for all

March 15, 2017 - 1:15pm - 2:30pm
Conference Room A UN Headquarters New York, NY

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 non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Precious gains in maternal and child health could be lost due to the rapid rise of NCDs worldwide. 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 multisectoral partnerships for NCDs and women's health.
