Welcome to WNCD 2023
The third World Non-Communicable Diseases Congress (WNCD 2023) is scheduled to take place from June 25 to 30, 2023 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada.
WNCD 2023 will gather international experts to advance knowledge and expertise on non-communicable diseases (NCD), to assess their impact globally and to develop public health measures and recommendations to mitigate and contain them.
The Congress will cover major NCDs (for example, Cardiovascular, Cancer, Diabetes, Respiratory, and Mental Illness) and their risk factors, through the lenses of traditional health sciences (basic research, clinical, epidemiology, physiology, neurosciences, public health, social and behavioral sciences) as well as policy, health promotion and use of modern application tools such as Big Data, Machine Language and Artificial Intelligence, Wearable Technologies to assess NCD, and more.
Congress objectives will incorporate the interaction between infectious diseases and NCDs, with a special focus on the impact of infectious diseases on the global population. Representation and a focus on low- and middle-income countries will be a theme throughout Congress programming.
The Congress will be of interest to researchers, academics, health care professionals, policy developers and makers, research funders, health system managers and governors, consumer advocates from around the globe concerned with knowledge, innovation, and the exchange of ideas and perspectives to address the origin, prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and management of non-communicable or chronic diseases (e.g., cardiovascular disease, lung disease, cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, neurological conditions including dementia, mental health, addiction, muscular-skeletal conditions, chronic inflammatory conditions, metabolic and autoimmune conditions) across the human lifespan an over 800 expected participants.Tweets by ncd2023
