Research Projects

The Noncommunicable Diseases (NCD) program is designed for the professionals working or aiming at a career in the public health arena. The noncommunicable diseases are sweeping throughout the entire globe and are a slow motion disaster, as most of these diseases develop over time and already became a public health threat for 21st century. There is an increasing trend in developing countries, where the demographic and socio-economic transition imposes more constraints on dealing with the double burden of communicable and noncommunicable diseases in a poor environment, characterized by poor health systems. Noncommunicable diseases are responsible for 63% (38 million) of all deaths globally. Four groups of diseases account for 82% of all NCD deaths - annually cardiovascular diseases death 17.5 million people, followed by cancers (8.2 million), respiratory diseases (4 million), and diabetes (1.5 million). Eighty percent of deaths due to NCDs occur in developing countries with significant social, economic, and health consequences. Bangladesh has been experiencing an epidemiological transition from communicable diseases to Noncommunicable diseases and now facing double burden. According to the NCD Country Profile 2011 (WHO), NCDs are estimated to account for 52% (CVDs-27%, Cancer-9%, Respiratory diseases-6%, Diabetes mellitus-2% and other NCDs-8%) of all deaths in Bangladesh. If we add injury (10%) then it will account to two-third (62%) of all deaths in our country. So the projection reflects that NCDs have already appeared as a major public health problems in Bangladesh and this situation can be explained by existence of globalization, poorly planned urbanization, and environmental and lifestyle factors such as tobacco use, physical inactivity, the harmful use of alcohol and unhealthy diets. The burden of these conditions affects countries worldwide but with a growing trend in developing countries. Preventive strategies must be taken into account against growing trend of risk factors correlated to these diseases. Therefore, these factors must be known by the students for better understanding of root causes of NCDs that will help them to formulate preventive and control strategies of major noncommunicable diseases.
