Expert Comment - Part 2

On September 16 I blogged about an expert comment by Dr Sudeep Chand of Chatham House about the UN meeting on non-communicable diseases. In a follow-up he assesses the outcomes of the meeting.

Unfortunately, it seems a chance was missed to address the global challenge of health in a global, coordinated way: "There is little in the declaration that is specific on international cooperation or coordination. [...] Health system development, the regulation of industry, and key interventions across sectors such as education, environment, agriculture, and transport remain areas for intervention at the national level."
