The WHO has indicated that the non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, are the leading causes of mortality in the world. Largely considered as an epidemic, the NCDs are an under-rated cause of poverty and appear as obstacles to the economic development of many countries, especially those in the low to moderate income economies. Major Non communicable diseases are due to tobacco use such as in cigarette smoking, harmful use of alcohol, unhealthy diet, insufficient physical activity, over-weight/ obesity, raised blood pressure, raised blood sugar and raised cholesterol.

However, the NCD threat can be overcome using existing knowledge and technology. The solutions to this epidemic are highly cost-effective and could be adopted by all nations worldwide. In this regard, comprehensive and integrated action at country level, led by governments, is the means to achieve success in the long run.
