Noncommunicable diseases: Country profiles 2014

According to this WHO report 28 million people die each year from Non-communicable diseases in developing countries, mainly from cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes

Current global mortality from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) remains unacceptably high and is increasing. Thirty-eight million people die each year from NCDs, mainly from cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes. Over 14 million deaths from NCDs occur between the ages of 30 and 70, of which 85% are in developing countries. These premature deaths are largely preventable by governments implementing simple measures which reduce risk factors for NCDs and enable health systems to respond.
