NCD Child Connects!
Since late 2010 CLAN (Caring & Living As Neighbours) has been working as Chair of the Child-focused Working Group of the NCD Alliance. As a result of the exponential expansion in the number of amazing organisations and individuals passionate about connecting to raise the profile of children and adolescents ahead of - and beyond - the UN High Level Meetings on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) planned for September 2011, CLAN has had to find new ways to connect and communicate on a larger scale.
We are very grateful to Stephen Walsh and his team at ThinkWalsh Technology for their fantastic work establishing a new section on CLAN's website dedicated to NCD Child (a project managed by CLAN), that we hope will help us continue to advocate for children and adolescents in the exciting months - and years! - ahead.
