Growing Burden of Lifestyle Diseases in Emerging Countries

While low and middle income group countries are typically characterized by a high burden of communicable diseases, the trend appears to be changing. By 2030, NCDs are expected to account for nearly 55% of the disease burden of these country groups. A growing middle aged population increases the risk of NCDs in the low and middle income country groups, especially Asia, Africa, and parts of Latin America. Growth in burden of NCDs—diabetes and cardiovascular diseases—not only calls for greater healthcare infrastructure and a larger healthcare workforce but also adequate preventive care. The initiatives of the government to develop eHealth in some countries open up avenues for investment in areas, such as tele-medicine, healthcare platforms and application software, and electronic health records.
