How can noncommunicable disease programs contribute to the COVID-19 response? Watch the recording of our CUGH 2021 Virtual Conference Satellite Session with CDC experts.

Today, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), are responsible for 7 out of 10 of deaths worldwide, with 85% of premature NCD deaths occurring in low- and middle-income countries. Along with our global partners, CDC is working to reduce the impact of NCDs like cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and injury.
