with a subject of BURDEN of CHRONIC DISEASES.

Here is the 53 slides updated PDF file (9,5 MB) : Burden of Chronic Diseases

10 important public health issues related to BURDEN of CHRONIC DISEASES :

Chronic Diseases: Addressing conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension is crucial. Promoting healthy lifestyles, regular screenings, and early intervention can mitigate their impact.

1.Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death and disability worldwide, significantly impacting the quality of life.
2.The global burden of chronic diseases is measured in Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs), which combine years of life lost due to premature mortality and years lived with disability.
3.Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes, represent the majority of the disease burden.
4. Many chronic conditions are preventable through lifestyle changes, such as reducing smoking, alcohol use, obesity, and increasing physical activity.
5. The sociodemographic index plays a role in the burden of chronic diseases, with varying  impacts across different regions and populations.
6. Smoking, pollution from ambient particulate matter, and occupational exposure are significant contributors to the burden of like COPD.
7. Advances in medical technology and healthcare systems can help manage and reduce the burden of chronic diseases.
8. Public health policies and education are crucial in addressing the risk factors associated with chronic diseases.
9. There is a need for global collaboration to share knowledge, resources, and strategies to tackle the burden of chronic diseases effectively.
10.The future of managing chronic diseases lies in personalized medicine and preventive healthcare strategies tailored to individual risk profiles.

These points can serve as a comprehensive wrap-up of the lecture, emphasizing the significance of chronic diseases and the multifaceted approach required to address them.

We’re deeply concern with the community health by education and promoting people on both technical medical issues and political aspect of the problem..

With respect and love. 15th April 2024, Ankara
