Notes

"September 2011."
"This paper is the second in a series of World Bank knowledge products on the global epidemic of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). The first - Chronic Emergency: Why NCDs Matter - underlines the massive health and socio-economic impact that NCDs will bring if the epidemic is left unchecked, particularly for less developed economies and poorer populations. The impact of the mounting NCD challenge cannot be fully understood without considering the broad range of direct and indirect effects on economies and health systems, as well as on the affected individual and his or her household. These effects drive economic and human development outcomes, including: decreased country productivity and competitiveness, greater fiscal pressures, diminished health outcomes, and increased poverty, inequity, and opportunity loss. This paper focuses on solutions, indicating opportunities for prevention and the kind of actions that can achieve it" -- introduction.
