MANILA, Philippines — One in three Filipinos die prematurely from four leading non-communicable diseases (NCDs) before the age of 70.

This was the warning of specialists from the United Nations Interagency Task Force on Prevention and Control of NCDs and the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control Secretariat who came for a week-long mission in the Philippines. The experts said that one in three Filipinos is likely to die from cardiovascular diseases such as stroke or heart attack, diabetes, cancers and chronic respiratory diseases such as emphysema.
