Abstract

Highlights

  • Progress in prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NSD) is lagging behind in many countries.
  • A sustainable public health approach is essential for combating NSD.
  • All countries need to increase domestic revenues to address NSD.
  • NSD should be an integral part of the national framework for sustainable development.
  • The world needs the World Health Organization more than ever to respond to public health crises including NSD.
