Non-Communicable Disease & Food - Building A Better Way Together in India

As India's economy continues growing, it faces a rising challenge from obesity and related non-communicable diseases. India is the first country to develop specific national targets and indicators, aimed at reducing the number of global premature deaths from NCDs by 25 percent by the year 2025. While a strong policy framework is important, the private sector has a vital role to play in advancing important health goals. Please join USIBC and McLarty Associates for a luncheon to discuss how the global investment community can make a difference.
