Se trata de un plan de 10 años de plazo, que incluirá acciones con múltiples actores para abordar el problema de la hipertensión, el cáncer, la diabetes, las enfermedades pulmonares crónicas y la enfermedad renal. Se prevén acciones de prevención, tratamiento, información en salud e incidencia política que afronten los principales factores de riesgo: falta de actividad física, alimentación poco saludable, la obesidad, consumo abusivo de alcohol y uso de tabaco.
El sector de la salud no puede, por sí solo, hacer frente a estos desafíos que implican un abordaje sobre las desigualdades sociales y los determinantes sociales de la salud. Por ello, el plan incluirá no solo acciones para la detección precoz y el tratamiento de estos pacientes, sino acciones en las áreas de la planificación urbana, oferta de alimentos.

The National Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non Communicable Diseases is a 10 year plan and actions include multiple stakeholders to address the problem of hypertension, cancer, diabetes, chronic lung disease and kidney disease. The focus is on the prevention, treatment, health information and policy advocacy to address the major risk factors: lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, obesity, excessive consumption of alcohol and tobacco use. The health sector cannot address these challenges alone as they are involved with social inequalities and the social determinants of health. Therefore, the plan will include not only actions for early detection and treatment of these patients, but actions in the areas of urban planning and food supply.
