Description

The five-target '25 × 25' strategy for tackling the emerging global epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) focuses on four diseases (CVD, diabetes, cancer, and chronic respiratory disease), four risk factors (tobacco, diet and physical activity, dietary salt, and alcohol), and one cardiovascular preventive drug treatment. The goal is to decrease mortality from NCDs by 25 per cent by the year 2025. The 'standard approach' to the '25 × 25' strategy has the benefit of simplicity, but also...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractThe five-target '25 × 25' strategy for tackling the emerging global epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) focuses on four diseases (CVD, diabetes, cancer, and chronic respiratory disease), four risk factors (tobacco, diet and physical activity, dietary salt, and alcohol), and one cardiovascular preventive drug treatment. The goal is to decrease mortality from NCDs by 25 per cent by the year 2025. The 'standard approach' to the '25 × 25' strategy has the benefit of simplicity, but also has major weaknesses. These include lack of recognition of: (i) the fundamental drivers of the NCD epidemic; (ii) the 'missing NCDs', which are major causes of morbidity; (iii) the 'missing causes' and the 'causes of the causes'; and (iv) the role of health care and the need for integration of interventions.
