Perspectives on NCDs and their Impact

Posted on: May 22nd, 2012 by Arogya World

Arogya World recently had the opportunity to discuss NCDs with none other than Sir George Alleyne, Director Emeritus of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).

As world leaders are gathering in Geneva for the World Health Assembly this week, where NCDs are high on the agenda, we are especially pleased to present his views on the impact of NCDs on women, and how NCDs are linked to maternal and child health issues.

Produced by PAHO, the interview was conducted by Arogya World. We are thrilled to bring you this series of videos with Sir George’s perspectives on important NCD topics, including NCDs and sustainability, how to incite action and build upon progress made.

Watch the videos:

We are so grateful to Sir George and the fine staff at PAHO for sharing with us their time, insight and talent.
