- Non-communicable disease (NCD) is the leading cause of death globally. In low-and-middle-income countries, of all deaths in people under 60, 29% are due to NCD, whereas in developed countries, it accounts for 13% of deaths. The high problem of NCD in Medan City requires adequate and comprehensive control effort through promotion, early detection, treatment, and rehabilitation. These efforts need to be supported by the provision of accurate data and information. The purpose of this study was to provide an overview of NCD Diseases in Medan City.
