Countries agreed on a draft plan to prevent and control chronic diseases
Representatives of the countries during the 66th World Health Assembly held in Geneva, Switzerland

Countries participating in the 66th World Health Assembly, which ended on Tuesday (28) in Geneva, approved the draft Plano de Ação para a Prevenção e Controle de Doenças Não Transmissíveis 2013-2020.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 36 million people die every year worldwide from diseases like cancer, diabetes, asthma and hypertension.

The coordinator of WHO's global program for prevention and control of chronic diseases, Shanti Mendis, said the action plan agreed between the countries has two components.

The first is a series of actions to member countries, for national and international partners of the United Nations and the UN itself. The second component of the plan is a framework for global monitoring.

Mendis explained that these two processes together allow all participants to implement the actions collectively while monitoring your progress. "The action plan is a powerful tool to reduce by 25% the number of deaths caused by chronic diseases by 2025."

Post <b> Schedule 2015 </ b>

The fight against non-communicable diseases have an important role in <LINK=3817>. According to the draft, the new plan will focus on control of the social determinants of health. With the air handling emergencies epidemic spread more easily, which makes it difficult to monitor and control the country. One example is the recent mutant coronavirus.

Although the International Health Regulations (IHR) is a valuable tool since 2005, their implementation and operational synchronization has not been performed successfully in many countries that are lagging behind in providing the basic data that WHO needs to coordinate the implementation of the IHR. Among these countries, many are European. To accelerate this implementation, the 66th World Health Assembly enacted fifteen recommendations. In addition to these obstacles above, the fight against infectious diseases (epidemic and non epidemic) becomes even more difficult because of resistance to antibiotics, in part, due to abuse.

<b> Reform WHO </ b>

The WHO reform continues to advance, but remains controversial as regards the criteria for assessing the impact of the Organization's work in the country. The proposed budget for the biennium 2014-2015 is around U.S. $ 3.977 billion.

A report by the Secretariat places a concern about the prevalence of disabilities, estimated at 1 billion people (15% of world population). It is assumed also that the fight against disabilities will be a pillar of Agenda 2015 Post health.
