This document is the first noncommunicable disease (NCD) strategic plan in Cambodia and was developed in response to a situational analysis of NCD and its risk factors in the country. The strategy was implemented over a four year period, from 2007 to 2010, and sought to prevent and control the significant and growing burden of noncommunicable disease in Cambodia and address the effects it has on individuals, families and society.

The four main goals of the strategy include:
1) To develop and strengthen the institutional management and implementation structure for noncommunicable disease;
2) To develop a surveillance system for NCD risk factors and select diseases;
3) To stall the epidemic of NCD through the population reduction in the main risk factors of poor diet, physical inactivity, smoking, harmful alcohol use and the aggressive management of high risk individuals;
4) To strengthen and equip health delivery systems to provide affordable, equitable and quality management of noncommunicable diseases to all Cambodians
