Expert meeting on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) – 22 September 2015

This Expert Meeting will address two questions:
1. How can the international human rights framework contribute to the global response to NCDs?
2. Are the current international human rights frameworks adequate to address NCDs, or do we need new sources of legal obligation?
The issues will be examined in depth with reference to obesity, diabetes and healthy diets, however the conclusions will contain lessons for other NCDs.

The event is jointly organized by Global Health Law Groningen, the International Development Law Organization and the Netherlands School of Human Rights Working Group on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
