Cancer and diabetes are NCDs that are responsible for more than 50% of deaths worldwide, making them the leading cause of mortality in the world. As the global health community works to find solutions to these illnesses, it is important to recognize that these diseases can come in a variety of forms and often those affected are plagued by stigmatization or simple lack of awareness. This leads to low rates of treatment and high rates of preventable complications, including death.
Research an NCD of your choice and describe its impact on your community/city/state.
