Addressing NCDs in Low and Middle Income Countries Special Interest Group

After the positive response from delegates attending this year's FPH Conference session on 'Preventing the rise of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in low and middle income countries, a new Special Interest Group (SIG) has been established.

The addressing NCDs in Low and Middle Income Countries SIG will advocate for action to address the rising burden of NCDs; support other global health SIGs to take  forward work in this area; and act as a resource to FPH and its members on knowledge related to NCDs.

The group is looking for new active members to take forward the workplan and contribute towards this important public health area. If you are interested in joining this SIG, please complete this application form and email it to the Chairs.

Chairs: Katy Scammell (, Tim Elwell-Sutton ( and Dave McConalogue (
