Summary
Noncommunicable diseases pose the greatest threat to the health of the people in the WHO European Region, yet this is an area where the greatest health gains are available at relatively modest cost. This book gives detailed insight into policy development in eight European countries over several decades to address the challenge of noncommunicable diseases, and draws out the main themes to assist policy-makers in formulating their own responses. While originally developed to support countries in implementing the WHO European Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases, the insights are likely to be of benefit to a much wider audience.
