NCD from Public Health Perspective

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are chronic conditions arising from genetic, behavioral, and environmental factors, including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes. Unlike infectious diseases, NCDs are not contagious and develop gradually due to lifestyle choices like poor diet, lack of exercise, and smoking. They pose a significant global health challenge, requiring awareness campaigns, lifestyle changes, and improved healthcare access for prevention and management. Addressing NCDs demands collaborative efforts from governments, healthcare systems, and individuals to alleviate their long-term impact on health and well-being.
