Proposed policy priorities for preventing obesity and diabetes in the Eastern Mediterranean Region
World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean; Alwan, Ala; McColl, Karen; Al-Jawaldeh, Ayoub ( 2017 )
Abstract

There is an alarming and escalating burden of overweight, obesity and diabetes in the Eastern Mediterranean Region, closely linked to changing dietary patterns. Obesity and the most common type of diabetes are largely preventable and urgent action is needed to reduce exposure to their causal factors, such as unhealthy diet and physical inactivity. This document takes into account the recommendations of several recent initiatives on the prevention of obesity and diabetes and identifies priorities for an approach to reduce exposure to unhealthy dietary risk factors. It presents an initial proposal for 10 priority areas for action, which cover 37 strategic interventions to help prevent overweight, obesity and diabetes in the whole population, including children, adolescents and adults

Early detection of cancers common in the Eastern Mediterranean Region
World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean ( 2017 )
Abstract

The impact of the growing burden of cancer in countries of the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region is evident, and necessitates implementation of suitable and effective cancer control policies. Cancer control programmes should primarily target those cancers most responsible for the high burden of disease, that have major public health implications, and for which there is robust evidence that the systematic application of interventions will lead to a reduction in mortality in a cost-effective manner, in the context of the available health care resources. In the Region, national cancer control programmes should focus on five selected cancers - lung, colorectal, prostate and liver cancers in men; and breast, colorectal, liver and cervical cancers in women - that are amenable to control through specific strategies implemented at the population level

Frequently asked questions on noncommunicable diseases in the Eastern Mediterranean Region
World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean ( 2016 )
Abstract

Noncommunicable diseases, commonly known as chronic or lifestyle-related diseases, include heart diseases, cancers, lung diseases and diabetes. These diseases are the world’s biggest killers and a leading cause of death in the Region, responsible for as many as 1.7 million deaths every year. The main noncommunicable diseases are caused primarily by four major risk factors: tobacco use, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol, and so many deaths could be prevented through simple lifestyle-related changes and the implementation of cost-effective interventions by governments. This booklet, intended for policy-makers, answers some frequently asked questions on noncommunicable diseases and the measures and interventions needed to prevent and control them
