by IAPO at 7:36PM Wednesday 11 May 2011 (News)
On the occasion of the 64th World Health Assembly, the International Alliance of Patients’ Organizations (IAPO), Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) and the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) will hold a side meeting on: The Role of Patients in the Prevention and Management of Non-communicable Diseases.

Venue: Room IX (9), Palais des Nations, United Nations, Geneva, Switzerland
Date and Time: Monday 16 May 2011, 18.00-19.30

Accounting for 60% of all deaths worldwide, with 80% occurring in low and middle income countries, non-communicable diseases pose an increasing threat to the health and prosperity of the world’s population.  A coalition of patients’ organizations will hold a meeting that highlights the role patients and patients’ organizations should play in the prevention and management of non-communicable diseases. The meeting will draw on the experience of patients living with non-communicable diseases and highlight the impact of patient involvement in the design and delivery of care. In addition the meeting will bring perspectives from around the world highlighting experiences in low, middle and high income countries.

The meeting is open to everyone. However, to attend, you must register with the WHO for the World Health Assembly. If you would like to attend or require further information, please contact Jeremiah Mwangi at info@patientsorganizations.org or +44 207 721 7508.
