Derek Yach, PepsiCo’s Senior Vice President of Global Health and Agriculture Policy recently posted, Private Sector Serious About Tackling NCDs Despite Concerns of Civil Society, on the Huffington Post.
In the post, an update on the United National High-Level Meeting on NCDs one year ago, Derek says that, “We in the private sector agree that a multidisciplinary approach is needed to tackle NCDs. The private sector is a major stakeholder in many ways — as employers; makers of food and medicines, sports gear and technology; as corporate citizens and consumers — and wants to be engaged in the global NCD dialogue. We deserve a seat at the table.”
Derek follows with some examples of private sector actions and suggestions for next steps.
