NCDs are largely preventable by means of effective interventions that tackle shared risk factors, namely: tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol.
NCDs are not only a health problem but a development challenge as well.
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and spread of cells that arises from a change in one single cell. The change may be started by external agents and inherited genetic factors and can affect almost any part of the body. The transformation from a normal cell into a tumour cell is a multistage process where growths often invade surrounding tissue and can metastasize to distant sites.
Cardiovascular disease is caused by disorders of the heart and blood vessels, and includes heart attacks, stroke, raised blood pressure (hypertension), peripheral artery disease, rheumatic heart disease, congenital heart disease and heart failure. 80% of premature deaths from these causes could be avoided by controlling the main risk factors: tobacco, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity.
About 347 million people worldwide have diabetes.
There is an emerging global epidemic of diabetes that can be traced back to rapid increases in overweight, obesity and physical inactivity.
Noncommunicable diseases: Current status and trends in risk factors
The prevalence of these risk factors varied between country income groups, with the pattern of variation differing between risk factors and with gender. High-, middle- and low-income countries had differing risk profiles.
Several risk factors have the highest prevalence in high-income countries. These include: 1.physical inactivity among women, 2.total fat consumption, 3.raised total cholesterol.
Some risk factors have become more common in middle-income countries. These include: 1.tobacco use among men, 2.overweight and obesity.
The global obesity epidemic requires a population-based multisectoral, multi-disciplinary, and culturally relevant approach WHO's Action Plan for the Global Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases provides a roadmap to establish and strengthen initiatives for the surveillance, prevention and management of noncommunicable diseases, including obesity.
