  • NCDs kill more than 41 million people each year, including 15 million who die prematurely before the age of 70.
  • More than three out of four NCD deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, and most are preventable.
  • NCDs were responsible for approximately 39% of deaths in our country in 2020, compared to 27% in 2014.
