Abstract

Using the Instruments of Research as a Tool in Alleviating the Burden of Non- Communicable Diseases

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are presently emerging as major problems globally, as disease rates from NCDs are generally on the increase, advancing across regions and social classes [1]. According to the World Health Report [2], five out of the ten leading global disease burden risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, physical inactivity and unhealthy diet. These preventable risk factors, together with alcohol and tobacco use, play a key role in the development of chronic diseases [3]. There is a consensus that global and region-specific estimates of the burden of NCDs may not reflect the health problems faced by the entire world; as poor people face the greatest threats to their health [4].
