|Non Communicable Disease & Global HealthElective||12.5|
Non Communicable Disease & Global Health
Globally, non communicable disease (NCD) accounts for 65.5 percent of all deaths, and 54 precent of disability adjusted life years (DALYs) . While NCD has sometimes been assumed to impact only wealthy countries, globally it is a major health and development challenge. Around 80 percent of NCD-related deaths occur in low and middle incomes countries. Nations with the highest NCD burden include some of Australia’s closest neighbours, particularly island states in the Pacific where over 70 percent of mortality is now due to NCD resulting in falls in life expectancy in some countries. The growing NCD burden is of critical importance to global health and development because it impacts economic...
