Chronic diseases: The global epidemic

The WHO’s first “Global Status Report” defines noncommunicable diseases such as cardiovascular disorders, cancer or diabetes as a “slow-motion catastrophe.” Newly industrialized and industrializing countries are the greatest victims of these noncommunicable diseases. 80% of deaths due to cardiovascular disorders, cancer or diabetes were recorded among the poor and under-privileged populations in developing and newly industrializing countries.
