Summary
Based on a review of available literature, this monograph explores the links between poverty and noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) with particular reference to the Western Pacific Region. The project was specifically designed to stimulate discussion on the relationship between poverty and NCDs, to contribute to the reduction of the impact of NCDs in developing countries, and to foster an understanding of how to improve health outcomes for the poor or socially marginalized groups with NCDs.
