PAHO/WHO global conference on NCDs and mental health conditions

This week I had the pleasure to participate as a speaker in the collaborative conference held by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and World Health Organization (WHO). This body has been, over the past year, working to create a framework to include the voice of people living with non-communicable diseases and mental health conditions as equal co-creators of policies, programs and principles. I am honored to be part of this esteemed group of professionals who are passionate, committed advocates of public health.

If you care to, you can watch the two day conference using the links below. The two days are a mix of very short presentations and groups working to come up with how to make this “meaningful engagement,” or inclusion of our voices, happen in the most productive and sustainable way:
