Follow the NCD Alliance at Women Deliver!

03rd June 2019

This week, the NCD Alliance team is in Vancouver for the Women Deliver conference, which brings together over 8,000 advocates from more than 160 countries to discuss gender equality and the health and rights of girls and women. 

Together with HelpAge International and FIGO (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics), the NCD Alliance is hosting three sessions focused on NCDs, mental health, and ensuring quality of care throughout the lifecourse.

Each of these interactive sessions will highlight the need for a lifecourse approach to ensure women and girls have access to the promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative, and palliative quality services and care they require. 

Additionally, the Women and NCDs Taskforce will be convening three youth leaders at lunchtime on Wednesday 5 June at their booth in the exhibition hall in an "Ask Me Anything" session, where participants are invited to interact with these dynamic young leaders. 

If you would like to follow the discussions remotely, many sessions will be webcast via WomenDeliver live, including the NCD Alliance's session on Tuesday 4 June.
