As strategies targeting undernutrition and infections become increasingly successful in low- and middle-income countries LMICs , a second challenge has appeared, namely premature onset of non-communicable diseases NCDs. We propose the concept of opportunistic NCDs, hoping that fighting against infections, and for better maternal and child health, is becoming acknowledged as essential for the early prevention of NCDs. As treatment strategies targeting undernutrition and infections become increasingly successful in low- and middle-income countries LMICs , individuals survive to meet a second challenge, namely the premature onset of non-communicable diseases NCDs.

Management and Prevention Strategies for Non-communicable Diseases (NCDs) and Their Risk Factors
According to the definition of WHO, NCDs are preventable diseases through lifestyle modification of the common causes such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use and excessive alcohol use. For a narrow definition, it consists of cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and chronic respiratory disease. There is yet to be a formal agreement if mental illness and trauma should be added into the group of NCDs although the issues have been widely discussed. The Global Action Plan focuses on four specific NCDs cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes , and on four shared behavioral risk factors tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol.

It was clear from the political resolution adopted at the summit that the NCDs were being recognized as a similar grave threat to global health and development, warranting concerted global action for prevention and control UN General Assembly
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 others. NCDs may be chronic or acute. Most are non- infectious , although there are some non-communicable infectious diseases, such as parasitic diseases in which the parasite's life cycle does not include direct host-to-host transmission. NCDs are the leading cause of death globally. Every year, at least 5 million people die because of tobacco use and about 2.

Prevalence of smoking, physical inactivity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and excess weight were studied and presented separately and aggregated in various combinations. The most frequent risk factor was physical inactivity Women were less active and thinner than men. More than half of the sample showed two or three risk factors The combination of physical inactivity and excess weight was observed in
Non-communicable diseases NCDs are of increasing concern for society and national governments, as well as globally due to their high mortality rate. The main risk factors of NCDs can be classified into the categories of self-management, genetic factors, environmental factors, factors of medical conditions, and socio-demographic factors. The main focus is on the elements of self-management and to reach a consensus about the influence of food on risk management and actions toward the prevention of NCDs at all stages of life.
Anstey in Therapeutic Advances in Chronic Disease. Noncommunicable disease now contributes to the World Health Organization top 10 causes of death in low-, middle- and high-income countries. Particular examples include stroke, coronary heart disease, dementia and certain cancers. Research linking clinical and lifestyle risk factors to increased risk of noncommunicable disease is now well established with examples of confirmed risk factors, including smoking, physical inactivity, obesity and hypertension. However, despite a need to target our resources to achieve risk reduction, relatively little work has examined the overlap between the risk factors for these main noncommunicable diseases.
