About the Organizers
The Research Symposium is embedded within a meeting of US investigators and their global collaborators; it will include plenary sessions and technical workshops related to the global NCDs and the SDGs.
Abstracts on any global NCD research issue will be considered. Research on the intersection of NCDs and topics related to targets specified by SDG #3 are highly encouraged. We welcome abstracts that describe approaches to reducing NCD mortality in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs); NCD prevention interventions or policy; NCD surveillance systems; health financing; global partnerships/collaborations to address NCDs in LMICs; implementation science; or the intersection of NCD research with other topical areas, such as HIV.
