Seminar – Global trade in food and agriculture and the risk of non-communicable diseases in low and middle income countries
October 18, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
All are invited to the CEDAR/MRC Epidemiology Seminar:
Trade and investment liberalization has had far-reaching implications for food systems and nutrition. This seminar will examine the pathways through which trade impacts on nutrition, with a particular focus on low and middle income countries, and explore opportunities to improve policy coherence in an era in which public health policy space is increasingly constrained by international trade and investment agreements.
