Noncommunicable diseases country profiles 2011
In this new report WHO maps the trends in noncommunicable diseases in 193 countries including India and suggests where each government needs to focus to prevent and treat 4 major killers - cancer, heart disease, lung disease and diabetes.
In April 2011 the World Health Organization (WHO) released the first Global status report on noncommunicable diseases outlining the statistics, evidence and experiences needed for a more forceful response to the growing threat posed by noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). Building on this earlier publication, this report provides an overview of the NCD situation in each WHO Member State. Each country profile provides the number, rates and causes of deaths from NCDs; the prevalence of selected risk factors; trends in metabolic risk factors in each country; and information describing current prevention and control of NCDs.
