CONFRONTING THE NEXT GLOBAL HEALTH CHALLENGE

 
Thanks to unprecedented international cooperation, the world is making impressive progress in But while mortality rates from infectious diseases are declining, developed countries' sedentary lifestyles, tobacco use, and poor diets are catching on in the developing world, and no communicable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer are increasing at an alarming rate.
 
NCDs now kill 38 million people annually, with almost 75% of those deaths occurring in low- and middle-income countries. And the outlook for developing countries is dire; for example, by 2030, NCDs are expected to cause more deaths in Africa than communicable, maternal, and nutritional illnesses combined.
 
Beyond threatening lives, NCDs can destabilize economies, especially in countries with limited health-care infrastructure. The challenge for governments and global health agencies is to continue making progress against infectious diseases, while also addressing the rising NCD threat.
 
Fortunately, we can apply lessons from the successful fight against infectious diseases to the emerging fight against NCDs. Working with nonprofit agencies, intergovernmental organizations, and private companies, world leaders can have a profound impact on public health ? even if foreign aid budgets are strained.
