This strategy is developed for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of four noncommunicable diseases: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, COPD and cancer.

This strategy is largely based on existing national action plans, strategies and guidelines. The measures are being implemented within current budgets. The ambition is that the strategy shall help Norway to achieve its goal of a 25 per cent reduction in premature deaths from these diseases by 2025, as laid down in Report No. 34 (2012–2013) Public health report. Good health – shared responsibility. The strategy shall also help to ensure that all those who are affected suffer as little as possible and have the progress of their diseases limited, so that they can live a good, long life in spite of their diseases.
