Excerpt
Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading causes of death and disability and appear to have been so for at least the last two decades of the 20th century. Disease rates from these conditions ase accelerating globally, advancing across regions and social classes. The high cun-ent burdens of NCDs are highlighted by the estimates provided by the World Health Report 2000, which indicate that these disorders together contributed to almost 60% of global mortality (3 1.7 million deaths) and 43% of the global burden of disease in 1999. The World Health Organization has recognized the global threat posed by these diseases and has declared the preventio~a~n d control of NCDs a priority in its programme of work. A global strategy for the prevention and control of NCDs was developed in 1999 and endorsed by the World Health Assembly in May 2000. As past of the implementation of the global strategy, an assessment of national capacity for NCD prevention and control was can-ied out by the Management of Noncommunicable Diseases (MNC) Department at WHO headquarters in close collaboration with other departments in the Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health (NIMH) Cluster and the six WHO regional offices. The project was initiated in October 2000 and has been co-ordinated by Dr Ala' din Alwan who until October 2001 was the Director of MNC. Dr Alwan was assisted by Dr A. Mandil and Dr D. Maclean. A questionnaire was developed and mailed to all 191 WHO Member States. The information obtained from completed questionnaires was augmented by a series of key informant interviews carried out with a sub-sample of senior officials of Health Ministries. The purpose of this report is to present the findings and conclusions of this survey.
