Brief description In 2011 the UN General Assembly identified the rise in non-communicable diseases (NCDs) as a major global threat, and prioritized preventive strategies against diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, allergy and asthma. Common risk factors for these inflammatory diseases begin early in life, the most logical time for prevention. Our international interdisciplinary network aims to improve health and prevent NCDs by early interventions that reduce inflammation over the life-course.
