Title : Observatory of International Regulation for Risk Factors Associated with Noncommunicable Chronic Diseases


According to estimates by the World Health Organization (WHO), noncommunicable chronic diseases (NCDs) are currently seven of the top 10 causes of death in the world. The data refer to the period 2000 to 2019. In 2019, all NCDs gathered accounted for 74% of deaths worldwide. Given this global panorama, in which populations from different countries face a pandemic of non-communicable chronic diseases, it is essential that states act in the elaboration of public policies to control these diseases. Thus, it is not enough to prevent primary care and promote healthy habits by health services. It is essential to regulate industrial production and the growing lobbying of transactional companies that interfere in the lifestyle of populations through the commercialization of products associated with the development of NCDs.
