Exploring the Interface between Communicable and Non-Communicable Diseases

While the Millennium Development Goals attempted to tackle some of the infectious diseases impacting many living in low income countries little emphasis was placed on recognising or responding to the rapidly escalating burden of non-communicable diseases. As we move into the post-2015 era exploring the interface between communicable and non-communicable diseases will become key to addressing many of the major global health problems.

To help bring together researchers from across the University of Edinburgh to think strategically about how we might approach these questions, Edinburgh Infectious Diseases and the Global Health Academy are organising a half-day workshop.
