The Government supports the World Health Organization’s (WHO) ‘Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of NCDs 2013-2020’ and has implemented a range of policies which contribute to reducing and controlling non-communicable diseases (NCDs). These include policies to reduce smoking; promote healthy diets; tackle misuse of alcohol; and encourage physical exercise. All of these policies are well-aligned with the WHO’s recommended actions on NCDs.
