Summary "Public Policy and the Challenge of Chronic Noncommunicable Diseases provides a framework that policy makers can use to formulate their strategies. The authors point out that the most effective policy response will be twofold: to develop programs to avoid the looming NCD burden of disease to the extent possible - for example, through public health interventions and improved health care - and simultaneously to prepare to address the health system and economic pressures that will arise from the increase in NCDs due to the aging of populations." "This book will be of interest to governments, international organizations, universities, and research institutions focusing on health care, economic policy, public health, and poverty reduction strategies."--Jacket
