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

Atlas: substance use in the Eastern Mediterranean Region 2015
World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean ( 2017 )
Abstract

Mental disorders have a profound effect on individuals, their families and society, and are responsible for 11% of disease burden in the Eastern Mediterranean Region yet. WHO's Project Atlas 2014 has collected and compiled information about mental health resources in countries around the world. This regional review incorporates region-specific data, presenting comparisons with other regions, analysing countries with similar health system characteristics within the Region, and providing concise summary sheets for each country that provided data for the Atlas 2014 Project. It is hoped that this will assist stakeholders in the countries of the Region to identify gaps in current provision and inform decisions around increasing resources to scale up services for mental health
