Abstract: WHO action in the area of prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in the South-East Asia (SEA) Region is guided by the Regional Framework for Prevention and Control of NCDs. The Framework was formulated in close collaboration with Member States and endorsed by the health secretaries of Member States of the Region at their 11th Meeting in 2006. The WHO Regional Committee for South-East Asia, vide its resolution on Scaling up Prevention and Control of Chronic Noncommunicable Disease (NCDs) in the South-East Asia Region (SEA/RC60/R4) further deliberated on and endorsed the Regional Framework and requested the Regional Director to report to the Sixty-third session of the Regional Committee in 2010 on the progress achieved in its implementation. The Regional Framework aims at facilitating the process of developing, updating and implementing national policies, plans and programmes for integrated prevention and control of major NCDs including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic pulmonary diseases and diabetes. It is based on public health principles and on national, regional and global consensus on policy and technical actions for prevention and control of NCDs and their primary risk factors. The attached working paper reflects on the health and socio-economic impact of NCDs in the Region. It reports on actions taken by Member States and by the WHO Secretariat, since the adoption of the Framework, to scale up prevention and control of NCDs. The attached working paper (Doc. SEA/RC63/20) is submitted to the High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting for its review and recommendations. The recommendations made by the HLP Meeting will be submitted to the Sixty-third Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
