Non-communicable diseases in Vietnam

A non-communicable disease (NCD), also known as a chronic disease, tends to be for the long-term and it is not transmissible directly from one person to another. Rather, it is caused by a combination of genetic, physiological, environmental and behavioral factors. Cardiovascular diseases include heart attacks and stroke. In Vietnam, risk factors include hypertension, high tobacco use and a high salt intake.
