Commercial Determinants of Health: a Global Challenge

June 2 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm +04

AUA Open Center for Transformative Health Solutions - Initiative Webinar - Commercial Determinants of Health: a Global Challenge - Nino Paichadze, MD, MPH -Assistant Research Professor, George Washington University

About the Event:

The Open Center for Transformative Health Solutions and Turpanjian College of Health Sciences, in collaboration with the National Institute of Health after Academician Avdalbekian, are hosting an Initiative Webinar on Commercial Determinants of Health.

The growing burden of non-communicable diseases and injuries (NCDIs) is a key global health challenge. The complex and multifactorial etiology of NCDIs is influenced by a wide range of individual, social, environmental, political, cultural, economic, and commercial determinants. While public health analysis has always looked at the power of big corporations, it is now — seven years post agreement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) — critically important for the global public health community to acknowledge threats to health from the corporate sector, discuss them in more systematic ways, and prepare to confront challenges through multi-sectoral action.

This webinar will introduce the concept of commercial determinants of health (CDoH) — their drivers and frameworks — and discuss some approaches for addressing them.

Prior registration is required. Please register here.
