Global Causes of Death
Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) kill 41 million people each year, equivalent to 75% of all deaths globally
Death's Caused by NCD's
Cardiovascular diseases account for most NCD deaths, or 17.9M people annually, followed by cancers 9M, respiratory diseases 3.9M & diabetes 1.6M. These 4 groups of diseases account for over 80% of all premature NCD deaths.
India NCD's Percentage
In India 60% death are happening due to Non-communicable diseases (NCDs). India rank’s 2nd globally for the highest deaths due to NCD’s.
If the major risk factors for NCD’s namely: tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol were eliminated, through effective interventions around three-quarters of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes would be prevented; and 40% of cancer would be prevented.
Prevention of NCDs is a growing issue: the burden of NCDs falls mainly on developing countries, where 90% of premature deaths from these diseases occur. Tackling the risk factors will therefore not only save lives; it will also provide a huge boost for the economic development of countries.
Detection, Screening and treatment of NCDs, as well as palliative care, are key components of the response to NCDs and that is the core objective of Universal Health Foundation (UHF).
In India nearly 9 in 10 people working in corporates suffer from stress. In fact, the recently-released findings of the 2018 Survey show that stress levels are higher in Indian compared with other developed and emerging countries. The survey further revealed that 95 per cent of Indian between the age group of 18-34 are stressed compared to the global average of 86 per cent.
WHO Global Conference on Noncommunicable diseases (NCD’s) has indicated NCDs are often preceded by stress-related metabolic syndrome (hypertension, high cholesterol, truncal obesity, and reduced responsiveness to insulin). Stress-related chronic NCDs continue to plague primary care practitioners, who at best can only slow progression of the disease. This results in enormous mortality, morbidity, and suffering and contributes to the ballooning of health care costs.
