CDC Global Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs)

Photo collage of noncommunicable disease activities, including a child sitting on the dirt streets of a shanty town, an elderly woman smoking, someone getting their blood pressue tested, and a woman using a cookstove inside her house.

Today, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), are responsible for more than 75% of deaths worldwide. Along with our global partners, we are working to reduce the effects of NCDs like cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and injury.
