Abstract

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) account for an estimated 71% of all deaths globally. In Norway, in 2015, 71% of all deaths were due to cardiovascular diseases, cancers and neurological disorders. NCDs are mostly chronic diseases where individuals live a long period with the disease, thus the disease becomes a part of everyday life. This perspective explores the NCD care model within the Norwegian health delivery system in relation to the integration of prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation services of non-communicable diseases to the primary health care system, and also explores several best practices and lessons that can be adapted to minimize the critical gaps and areas of the non-communicable diseases care model in Sri Lanka.
