The World Health Organization has identified four major non-communicable diseases (NCDs) as challenges to human health and development in the 21st century: cardiovascular diseases (CVD), diabetes, cancer and chronic respiratory diseases. NCDs kill an estimated 38 million people each year.
This survey has been developed by the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) in preparation for the Task Force thematic discussion on NCDs and law in 2016.
The preliminary results of the survey will be compiled by IDLO and tabled at the 5th Task Force meeting. All survey participants will also receive a copy of the survey results.
