Disease-Specific

(i.e., how, if at all, should the FCGH include provisions pertaining to specific diseases, categories of disease, or health conditions)

NCD-related regulation: Should the FCGH regulate food production and processing, beverages, or other factors that affect non-communicable diseases (NCDs)? How? Are there elements of the Political Declaration on NCDs (http://www.un.org/ga/search/view_doc.asp?symbol=A/66/L.1) or subsequent Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases 2013-2020 (http://apps.who.int/gb/ebwha/pdf_files/WHA66/A66_R10-en.pdf) that the FCGH should incorporate or build upon?

Antibiotic resistance: Should the FCGH address antibiotic resistance, given the growing harm and global dimensions of this challenge? If so, how? Research and development of new antibiotics? Measures to improve the rational use of and compliance with antibiotic prescriptions? The use of antibiotics in livestock?
