The Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) is a collaboration among the world's largest public medical and health funding agencies representing over 80% of the world's funding for medical research to address chronic, non-communicable diseases in low and middle-income countries. UCL will host the organisation’s secretariat, working to curb chronic diseases such as stroke, diabetes, chronic lung disease and heart disease throughout the world.
To mark the official launch of the GACD Secretariat within UCL's Institute for Global Health Dr Francis Collins, Director of the U.S. National Institutes of Health delivered the lecture “Evidence to guide change in global NCDs: the challenge for biomedical research funders” with an introduction provided by Professor Sir John Tooke, UCL Vice Provost (Health).
