Abstract

The 21st century has witnessed multiple public health emergencies (viz. Fukushima nuclear disaster, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, civil wars, natural calamities, etc.), which are mostly associated with many adverse consequences locally, nationally, and internationally. (1,2) Simultaneously, an unexpected rise in the global magnitude of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) has also been observed. The Lancet Commission on Global Health 2035 foresees that the threat of pandemics, antimicrobial resistance and noncommunicable diseases will represent the greatest threats to global public health in the future. (3) The disease burden in India is changing. While communicable diseases remain a significant threat, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are also posing threat to country’s public health and wellbeing.
