The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has launched an Independent Task Force on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs), co-chaired by Mitchell E. Daniels Jr., former governor of Indiana, and Thomas E. Donilon, former national security adviser, and directed by Thomas Bollyky, CFR senior fellow for global health, economics, and development. The Task Force is examining the NCD crisis in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and will recommend a strategy for the United States and others to adopt to address the problem. The Task Force inquiry extends beyond health issues and will consider the question of U.S. engagement on the issue as a matter of foreign policy, national security, and the promotion of international economic development and trade.
The Task Force seeks input from the private sector on the role of business in NCDs in LMICs. We hope that you and/or a colleague who focuses on relevant issues will join the discussion to share insights and experiences.
