He noted that industries that center on intellectual property employ more than 19 million Americans and account for some 60 percent of total U.S. exports.

Innovation and Collaboration to Address NCDs

Addressing the impact of non-communicable disease (NCDs) in the developing world will require a two-pronged approach that emphasizes both innovation and strategic partnerships.  

"Non-communicable diseases – including cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease, and diabetes – are by far the leading cause of death in the Asia-Pacific region and the world," Lechleiter said. He cited a number of compelling figures:

  • Of the 57 million deaths globally in 2008, 36 million, or 63 percent, were due to NCDs.
  • Some 80 percent of all NCD deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
  • While the increase in NCDs reflects in part the aging of world populations, one in four who died from NCDs in 2008 (9 million people) was under the age of 60.

Lechleiter noted that the cost of NCDs is economic as well as human. "As this scourge of premature death and disability takes lives, it also destroys opportunities and has profound economic consequences – adding to poverty, halting development, and weakening communities."  

He commended the APEC economies on their recent endorsement of the APEC Action Plan to Reduce the Economic Burden of NCDs, which guides APEC economies as they implement new programs and initiatives to prevent and mitigate NCDs.

"There will be no single solution to the challenge of NCDs – the work of finding and implementing effective approaches will be as complex as the diseases themselves," Lechleiter said. "By making the investments to find and deliver the next wave of innovative medicines, research-based companies can play a critical role
