Inspiring Smart Choices:

Better Communication for Addressing Public Health Challenges in a Post-2015 World

Inspiring SmartC hoices

As the United Nations prepares to release the Post-2015 Framework, how we communicate public health issues will be vital in how we achieve and finance new health benchmarks in a Post-2015 world. Against the backdrop of the 2014 World Health Assembly, we will explore the challenges of communicating and financing public health issues.

The ultimate goal of communicating health is to build an audience that is informed and empowered to make smart choices for themselves in daily life, business and public policy. Experts at this Roundtable will share ideas from multiple perspectives and provide thought provoking discussion on a variety of topics - from infectious disease, women’s health and NCDs including road safety in order to inspire progress.
