This webinar will look at the impact of Covid-19 on common non-communicable diseases such as diabetes. It will provide an opportunity to compare experiences and discuss different approaches to NCD prevention and control in the time of Covid.
The pandemic has highlighted the finely balanced relationship between communicable diseases and NCDs. Public health measures to deal with Covid-19 have been given priority over the interventions used to prevent and control NCD risk factors such as tobacco, alcohol and sugar controls and promotional campaigns for physical activity and healthy diets. They have also disrupted the regular care required by patients with NCDs.
The webinar will enable researchers to share information that can be used to inform government policies and decision-making.
The upcoming APRU Public Health Crisis Management webinar is led by The University of Sydney and in collaboration with three other APRU universities (National University of Singapore, Peking University and University of California Los Angeles).
