NCD Synergies Initiative Launch in Kigali, Rwanda
Hi all, wanted to let you know about the upcoming launch of the NCD Synergies initiative in Kigali, Rwanda this coming Monday and Tuesday (July 15th and 16th). The NCD Synergies Initiative is a project lead by the Rwanda Ministry of Health and supported by Partners In Health focused on promoting collaboration between countries fighting Non-Communicable Diseases of poverty. We are expecting more than 150 participants, including NCD focal points from 13 Ministries of Health in Africa. The title of the meeting is "South South Collaboration for Integrated Health Systems to Fight Non-Communicable Diseases of Poverty." The Honorable Minister of Health of Rwanda, Agnes Binagwaho will be opening the conference and Sir George Alleyne and Professor Srinath Reddy will be giving Keynote addresses.
Here is the conference website: http://www.ghdonline.org/ncd-synergies-kigali2013/
We will be tweeting from the event using the hashtag #NCDsynergies.
Following the conference, there will be an expert panel run through GHDonline to debrief and carry forward the momentum for this initiative (more detail on dates and panelists next week).
Hoping this will give a chance for all of you to participate who can't join us in Kigali.
