UN NCD Summit: Final Chance To Email Your UN RepFri 16 Sep 2011
Story by The Food Revolution Team
Next week is the UN Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) – 19/20 September.
It is so important that this summit makes meaningful change and that the UN set an agenda to tackle the growing health epidemic surrounding NCDs and diet-related illnesses – these are the curable and preventable diseases of the modern world impacting every country from the Americas and Europe to China and India. The rising cost financially and to modern life can no longer be ignored.
To make sure this summit makes the impact it needs we need to ensure that as many countries are represented as possible and enough leaders are present to push forward a plan and impress upon the world the importance of tackling NCDs.
