HEALTH FAIR SERVICES

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are chronic diseases and are the result of a combination of factors: genetic, physiological, environmental and behavioral.

Accounting for over 71% of all global deaths detection, screening, and treatment of NCDs, as well as palliative care, are key components to the response.
