INTRODUCTION

India is experiencing a rapid health transition with a rising burden of Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs). Common NCDs such as cardio vascular diseases (CVDs), diabetes, cancer and respiratory diseases account for major portion of mortality and morbidity due to NCDs. It is estimated that NCDs account for 60% of total deaths in India. The good thing however is that all these diseases are preventable through making a choice for healthy lifestyle.

In order to prevent and control major NCDs, the National Programme for Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases and Stroke (NPCDCS) was launched in 2010 with focus on strengthening infrastructure, human resource development, health promotion, early diagnosis, management and referral. Under the programme, NCD Clinics are being set up at District and CHC levels to provide services for common NCDs. Cardiac Care Units (CCU) are also being set up in identified districts for providing facilities for emergency Cardiac Care.
