  1. Would you like to host one of our monthly Non-Communicable Disease Forums?

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) kill 38 million people each year.

IGHI’s monthly NCD Forum provides an opportunity for interdisciplinary discussions of NCDs in low-and-middle-income countries (LMICs). Apart from its intrinsic interest, we hope that it will foster inter-Faculty research initiatives and leverage the immense strengths of Imperial to resolve one of the largest problems facing the world in the early 21st Century.

All members of the College from all Faculties are welcome including students at all levels.  The Forum meets normally on the third Thursday of each month between 3:00-5:00pm.  If you are interested in hosting a future forum, contact Jo Seed with your proposed topic at

Check out the write up of April’s NCD Forum which focused on eHealth in the LMICs.
