PDF File Size: 498 KB | Download   
Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading cause of death in the WHO South-East Asia Region. Each year, an estimated 7.9 million lives are lost due to NCDs, accounting for 55% of all deaths. Furhermore, NCDs claim lives at a younger age in the South-East Asia Region compared to the other WHO regions. In 2008, the proportion of NCD deaths occurring among people under the age of 60 was 34%, compared to 23% in the rest of the world. Cardiovascular diseases are the most frequent cause of NCD deaths, followed by chronic
respiratory diseases, cancers, and diabetes. The regional NCDs action plan is intended to provide a roadmap for regional and national actions for developing and implementing policies and programmes to reduce the burden of NCDs within the regional socioeconomic, cultural,political and health system contexts.The regional NCD action plan is consistent with the draft global action plan 2013–2020 and consolidates follow-up actions of the Political Declaration of the High-level Meeting on NCDs. While taking specific regional issues into account, it is coherent with the major global strategies for prevention and control of NCDs. Moreover, it provides a framework to support and strengthen the implementation of existing regional resolutions, strategies and plans as well as recommendations of the various regional consultations with Member States.
