Preventing Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs)

NCDs are the 21st century’s foremost threat to health, well-being and prosperity. What connects most NCDs is that they are highly preventable and are driven by a number of common, modifiable risk factors related to tobacco, alcohol, unhealthy food, limited physical activity and air pollution. The EU has the powers to prevent NCDs by creating health-enabling living environments. But this potential is vastly underused.

EPHA advocates for a strong European NCD prevention and health promotion agenda that answer to people’s aspirations for a healthy continent for current and future generations.
