  • Product Description

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are now being recognized as major cause of morbidity and mortality. The major risk factors for chronic disease are unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption. As India is going through epidemiologic, demographic, nutritional and behavioral transition accompanied by development and urbanization, this has resulted in a shift from communicable diseases toward non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Chandigarh (A U.T in north part of India) is also suffering from this slow epidemic of non- communicable diseases. Recent studies have shown that the prevalence of hypertension has doubled over 30 years in Chandigarh. This study has made an attempt to involve important stakeholders like government officials (Health), education and excise and taxation; community informants and school heads for their views on the current health strategies and suggestion on future health policy. The study would be useful for Public Health researchers to get an insight into the strategy evaluation and for policy makers to frame new strategies/policies or amend the existing ones to prevent non-communicable diseases and promote health.
