Role of food and agriculture research at the UN high level meeting September 19-20
The upcoming United Nations’ high level meeting [19 and 20 September 2011 in New York] is only the second ever to focus on a health issue (the first focused on communicable diseases – HIV/AIDS – in 2001). Many view this as an opportunity to shift focus and funding toward NCDs. To see videos of all three presentations, follow this link. Click here for more information on the UN high level meeting.
