Mike Davies OBE (Head of Programme Development, CBM UK) was one of the key speakers at The Cambridge Post-UN Summit Conference on Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health in Developing Countries.
The outcomes from the Conference (held on 20th January 2012) were translated into key messages and brought to the attention of MPs, Parliamentarians, civil servants, and other policy-makers, researchers, activists and practitioners, at a reception in the House of Commons at the end of January 2012.
Conference sessions included:
- Critical reviews of the outcomes of the UN Summit on Noncommunicable Diseases
- Short- and long-term strategies for addressing gaps in prevention, treatment, policy and 'public awareness' on noncommunicable diseases and mental health (NMH) in developing countries
- Highlights from a growing number of successful 'linking' and 'capacity-building' programmes, which assist individuals and organisation in the developing world to strengthen their own sustainable NMH research, treatment and care programmes.
- Different models of partnership to advance best practices and policies on NMH research, interventions, treatment and care - including multidisciplinary, multisectoral and multinational partnerships.
