BACKGROUND: Chronic and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are a growing and enormous challenge that faces countries across the world. Low- and middle-income countries are disproportionately affected. CONTRIBUTORY FACTORS: Three risk factors--tobacco use, poor diet (including excessive alcohol intake) and lack of physical activity--contribute to four major chronic diseases--cardiovascular, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes and some cancers, which are responsible for over 50% of deaths worldwide. POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS: International governmental and non-governmental agencies are becoming increasingly concerned and active. Nurses across the world are well positioned to play a significant role and work with a wide range of people involved in the prevention and management of these chronic diseases.
