Women, HIV/AIDS, and Non-Communicable Diseases: A Call to Action in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
MONDAY, JULY 21 | 18:30-20:30 in Plenary Room 3
Join the conversation on Twitter with hashtag #womenHIVNCDs.

Co-sponsored by Management Sciences for Health (MSH), The American Cancer Society, and Medtronic.

Join us to examine and discuss addressing HIV co-morbidities in AIDS and non-AIDS related events; the role of health systems in integrating non-communicable disease (NCD) care into HIV care models; lessons that can be leveraged and applied beyond 2015; and how primary health care models can be adapted in this context of an emerging global burden of chronic NCDs while ensuring sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and efficiency in lower and middle-income countries.

Refreshments will be served.
