The development of the National Policy for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs), 2015 - 2025 is an expression of the government of Oman’s commitment to healthy lifestyles and prevention of diseases. It has been developed to provide a platform for all stakeholders and partners to identify their role and shared contribution and commitments to accelerate action which in turn will bring enormous benefits to social and economic development as well as for the health system. This policy is based on the strategic goals outlined in the Health Vision 2050 as well other international and regional strategies and landmark initiatives.
