Non-Communicable Diseases during Disaster - Time to Take Action.

Surekha A, Suguna Anbazhagan.

Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) are now recognised as a real and growing threat to population health and development; Developing countries are often disproportionately burdened by both NCDs and disasters in comparison to higher income countries. While disasters can exacerbate existing NCDs, suboptimal management during and after a disaster not only has immediate health effects, but can also have lasting social and health ramifications. Greater advocacy and awareness surrounding NCDs and emergencies is vital.

Key words: Non-communicable diseases; disaster.
