Non Communicable Diseases Risk Factors: STEPS Survey Nepal 2013
PDF File Size: 3.86 MB | Download   
The emerging pandemic of non communicable diseases (NCDs) is creating major health challenges globally. The burden of non communicable diseases is also increasingly affecting developing countries such as Nepal. Similar to other low and middle income countries, Nepal is facing a triple burden of diseases: communicable diseases, re-emerging diseases and an escalation of non communicable diseases. Cardiovascular dis-eases, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and diabetes have been identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the four major NCDs worldwide. These diseases are driven by various forces including ageing, rapid unplanned urbanisation and the globalization of unhealthy lifestyles. The World Health Report 2002 states the eight major risk factors (four behavioural and four biological) that contribute most to the
development of NCDs (WHO 2002). To reduce NCDs it is important to focus on decreasing the risk factors as- sociated with these diseases and mapping the epidemic of NCDs and their risk factors.
