This NCD Prevention and Control Strategic Framework crystalises the hard work of the Department of Health (DH) and experts in different sectors and disciplines. It is built on current prevention themes, while drawing references from overseas experiences in health promotion and combat against NCD, as well as recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO). The framework calls for concerted efforts in the control and prevention of our diversiļ¬ed range of NCD by focusing on their predisposing factors. More importantly, it also sets out directions which will help shape an environment that is conducive to the sustaining of Hong Kong people's health and well-being.
