About the event

You are cordially invited to the Expert Forum on the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health - Swiss Re SEARCH collaboration, addressing

Health risk factors in Brazil

Brazil is facing a pandemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). These are challenging current public health provisions and insurance funding models.

Understanding the drivers behind this epidemic is vitally important. The Expert Forum will introduce the SEARCH collaboration, providing expert articles on latest changes in health risk factors in Brazil.

The Expert Forum will feature presentations by two of the authors who analysed the most important risk factors leading to cardiovascular disease, along with risk transfer tools that aim to protect health insurance policy holders against such occurrences.

Health matters - the risks Brazil faces are considerable, the opportunities potentially huge. Join the discussion of this fascinating challenge.

There is no fee to attend the event.

I look forward to welcoming you at the Unique Hotel on 10 March 2015.
