Diseases (2008-2013) outlines the proposed strategies and actions to tackle the growing public-health burden imposed by noncommunicable diseases with a focus on cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes. Given the considerable co-morbidity between mental health and physical problems, the Global Mental Health Action plan is expected to contribute to better health outcomes for people with the above four NCDs and vice versa.
