Towards the world we want
Noncommunicable disease control and development goals
WHO Bulletin "Globalization offers great opportunities, but its benefits are at present very unevenly shared. Inequity in health at the population level is affected by global changes in marketing and trade, rapid urbanization and population ageing. The social, economic and physical environments in low- and middle-income countries often afford their populations much lower levels of protection from the risks and consequences of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs)," write Oleg Chestnov, Werner Obermeyer, Joy St John, Menno Van Hilten and Alexey Kulikov for the WHO's Bulletin.
