During the United Nations General Assembly week, join Access Accelerated for an exclusive, thought-provoking forum addressing the growing burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Africa, Latin America and Asia. The event will feature an in-depth panel discussion with global leaders from public health, government and the biopharmaceutical industries on how the public and private sectors can come together to develop solutions that drive progress toward meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goal to reduce premature deaths from NCDs by one-third by 2030.
Guests will also have the opportunity to explore a marketplace of exhibits from current partner initiatives around the world, and meet other leaders in global health during a networking reception.
We envision a future where no one dies prematurely from a treatable, preventable disease, and all people living with non-communicable diseases have access to affordable, quality care.
By working across sectors—and in new ways—we can drive progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal target to reduce premature deaths from NCDs by one third by 2030.
Please join Access Accelerated and our partners, Union for International Cancer Control and the World Bank Group, for an engaging discussion, focused on how we can accelerate access to NCD care through the power of groundbreaking, purposeful collaboration.
