What are NCDs


Cardiovascular Disease

Hypertension is when there the blood pressure is elevated. The higher the pressure, the harder the heart has to pump. It may lead to heart attacks and strokes if the blood flow is blocked to the heart or brain due to a build-up of fatty deposits in the blood vessels. Strokes occur when the blockage is in the brain or there is a bleed from a blood vessel.


Human cells grow and multiply (cell division) to form new cells as the body needs them. When cells get damaged and become nonfunctional new cells take their place. Sometimes this orderly process breaks down and uncontrolled abnormal or damaged cells grow and multiply uncontrollably leading to cancerous tumors. 

Chronic Respiratory Diseases

Chronic respiratory diseases affect the airways and other parts of the lungs. It is a life-threatening condition that often occurs due to airway obstruction. It can be progressive and may lead to death. 


Diabetes is a state of ill health associated with increase blood glucose /sugar due to reduced insulin action in the pancreas. The food we eat is converted into energy/sugar where insulin, a hormone in your pancreas, is released to regulate the blood glucose/sugar levels.
