Notes

Contagious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis may have historically dominated the global healthcare agenda, less visible, yet even deadlier, forms of illnesses are emerging as a mortal threat to millions worldwide.

Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and chronic respiratory diseases, collectively called “non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are responsible for the deaths of around 36 million people every year.

 

It is estimated that poor diets, lack of exercise, smoking and excessive alcohol intake are major factors behind the deaths of a staggering 100,000 people every day. And it’s not just rich nations that are feeling the damaging effects of sloth, excess and poor diets.

 

Far from it, low and middle-income countries within the developing world are facing NCD deaths of epidemic proportions. Out of the 100,000 daily deaths, four out of five are occurring in the world’s poorest countries. NCD deaths are projected to increase by 15% globally between 2010 and 2020.
