The incidence is more in low and middle-income countries working in government; private industries and also ordinary people are mostly affected, now measures has to be taken to reduce the number of deaths. The report looks at the impact of chronic diseases on Brazil, Canada, China, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Russian Federation, the UK and the United Republic of Tanzania.

Simple measures could be used to tackle these factors, such as reducing salt in processed foods, improving school meals and taxing tobacco products, the report says.

The WHO says cutting deaths from chronic disease would also help countries' economies by cutting the cost of treatment and lost productivity caused by premature deaths, with the accumulated cost to China could be up to US$558 billion, to India US$236 billion, and to the Russian Federation US$303 billion, according to the WHO.
