Report on Rates of Noncommunicable Disease in Low and Lower-Middle Income Countries 

The Council on Foreign Relations released a report focusing on the factors associated with the growing global health crisis of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). The report highlights the fact that economic growth and urbanization are leading to increased life expectancies but without the infrastructure and health care systems to support this in the developing world. It calls on the United States to prioritize NCDs in global health funding.

"More patients will get sick, suffer longer, require more medical care, and die young. Given the scale of these trends, the results will reverberate."
