Srivatchava. S, V. Vishnu Priya, R. Gayathri
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases, tend to be long-lasting and result from a combination of factors in genetics, physiology, environment and behaviour. Cardiovascular disorders (such as heart attacks and stroke), cancers, chronic respiratory conditions (such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma), and diabetes are the major forms of NCDs Most are non-infectious, though there are some non-communicable infectious diseases, such as parasite diseases, in which the life cycle of the parasite does not include direct transmission from host to host. The results obtained were analysed and it was found that NCD’s has an effect on one’s day to day life.
