Almost two thirds of global mortality is due to non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Initially considered as the diseases of rich people, it has recently gained a lot of attention in low and middle income countries such as Nepal. There is limited evidence from Nepal on the gap between the burden of NCDs and the availability of NCD.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
