Norway was the first country to launch an international development strategy on NCDs, Better health, better lives (pdf),which positions Norway at the forefront in expanding work on NCDs in low-income countries. In line with the strategy, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health aims to cooperate with relevant actors and institutions with public health functions, to combat NCDs.

We are honored to have professor Maureen Black with us in the webinar series. She has made significant contributions to the intersection of child development and nutrition, and demonstrated that the principles of Nurturing Care apply from pre-conception through adolescence.

Maureen Black is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, and formerly the John A. Scholl and Mary Louise Scholl Endowed Professor. She is a distinguished fellow at RTI International and an adjunct professor at the Center for Human Nutrition at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Dr. Black conducts research in the United States and globally in low- and middle-income countries. She has published over 400 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, and served on advisory committees for multiple local, national, and international organizations (e.g., UNICEF, WHO, and the World Bank Group).
