Special Session: Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases and the Health Workforce
In June 2009, the Global Alliance for Chronic Disease was formed in response to the growing incidence of chronic non-communicable diseases throughout the world and particularly in the developing world, and the need for coordinated research programming. The institutions comprising the alliance collectively manage approximately 80 percent of all public health research funding worldwide and are targeting their activities toward the fight against chronic non-communicable diseases: cardiovascular diseases, several cancers, chronic respiratory conditions, and type 2 diabetes. Dr. Abdallah Daar, a member of the GACD, will discuss the goals of the Alliance, and the implications on the health workforce of this increase in chronic non-communicable diseases.
