Framing Non-Communicable Diseases to Accelerate Collective and Political Action

Noncommunicable Disease (NCD) governance is impeded by competition between perspectives which regard NCDs solely as a technical public health problem, an obstacle to economic growth or an equity and human rights issue.

Before speaking at the Prince Mahidol Award Conference on the political economy of NCDs, Jordan Jarvis will lead a discussion at the DIGHR on these multiple frameworks and how we might harness their commonalities to accelerate collective and political action.

Jordan Jarvis is the Director of Programs at the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network and a DrPH Student at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. She joins us at the invitation of Aria Ahmad, Global Health Foresighting Fellow, DIGHR.
