Abstract. In the Pacific region, the burden of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) is an immediate threat to Pacific Island countries.

NCD related mortality and morbidity is rising at an alarming rate as a result of a combination of unhealthy lifestyles and environmental changes which have driven increased levels of physical inactivity, unhealthy diet, tobacco and Author: Tahir Turk. A non-communicable disease (NCD) is a disease that is not transmissible directly from one person to another.

NCDs include Parkinson's disease, autoimmune diseases, strokes, most heart diseases, most cancers, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, cataracts, and may be chronic or are non.

This "double disease burden" poses demanding questions concerning the organisation of health care, allocation of scarce resources and strategies for disease prevention, control and treatment; and it threatens not only improvement in health status but economic development in the many poorer countries of the Asia Pacific region.

This book. Methods. Data on NCDs and their risk factors in adults in the Pacific are available from several different surveys.

Previous studies show that NCDs can impose larger costs than most communicable diseases in the Pacific. An earlier study found that one out of every 10 patients admitted to hospital in Tonga were admitted for a NCD, but resulted in one out of every 5. Diseases which are not contagious are called non-communicable diseases (NCD).

These diseases are a consequence of behavioral, hereditary or standard of life factors, such as smoking and an improper diet.

Examples of non-communicable diseases include diabetes, cancer, mental illness, common injuries and heart disease. TRADE, TRADE AGREEMENTS AND NON-COMMUNICABLE DISEASES IN THE PACIFIC ISLANDS.
