    UNU-IIGH is organising the Southeast Asia launch of the Rockefeller Foundation-Lancet Commission report on Planetary Health on Aug 6, 2015 in Kuala Lumpur.

    The launching event will include a  presentation and discussion of the report led by Prof Anthony Capon along with Prof Tan Sri Zakri Abdul Hamid, Dr Alex Ezeh and Dr Derek Yach.
