On Wednesday, September 26, the UNGA will hold a high-level meeting on the fight against tuberculosis.

On Thursday, September 27, the UN will hold a one-day comprehensive review of the progress achieved in the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which will be the third high-level meeting of the UNGA on the issue.

The President’s Press Unit has remained mum on the trip, hence it is not clear on when he will be back into the country.
