Online Community on Women and NCDs - join us for the launch webinar, 11.00 GMT Tuesday 5 March

4 March, 2019

Dear all,

The George Institute for Global Health is working with WHO’s Global Coordination Mechanism on Noncommunicable Diseases (GCM/NCD) to facilitate an online Community on Women and NCDs, hosted on WHO’s Knowledge Action Platform ( ).

The Community will promote gender equity and address the shift in the global burden of disease by looking at womenʼs and girlsʼ health and well-being from birth to death as interconnected periods, in which early health-related measures can be indicators for health outcomes later in life. The community will bring together diverse global experts in the fields of womenʼs health and sex/gender differences in health, and aims to create a network of people interested in promoting evidence-based, scalable best practices in implementing a life-course approach to women’s health and NCDs.

Please join us for a webinar to launch this community at 11.00 GMT on Tuesday 5 March. You'll hear a range of perspectives from an impressive panel of experts who will outline why we need to focus on women and NCDs, covering the roles played by sex and gender in the determinants and impacts of NCDs, from biology to social and economic inequalities and access to healthcare. Sign up here:

Best wishes,
