NCD Synergies, along with several partners and collaborators, hosts regular multi-national knowledge exchanges, online discussions, and webinars. The aim of these dialogues is to foster shared learning, collaboration, and development of best practices among our networks of clinicians, policymakers, activists, and researchers.
World Bank knowledge exchange
In collaboration with the World Bank, NCD Synergies and the NCDI Poverty Commission Secretariat has been hosting regular knowledge exchange webinars together with thought leaders and experts from the Lancet NCDI Poverty Commission, the 11 National Commissions & Groups, and the World Bank. Each monthly exchange features presentations and guided discussions on topics critical to addressing NCDIs of poverty. Highlights and reports of previously hosted exchanges are available here.
WHO Community of Practice
NCD Synergies and the Program in Global NCDs and Social Change at Harvard Medical School, in partnership with the WHO Global Coordination Mechanism on the Prevention and Control of NCDs, has recently launched a Community of Practice on NCDs, Poverty and Development. This CoP began in February 2018 and will continue with regular webinars and virtual discussions in the lead up to the UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs in September 2018.
