NCD risk factors in Malawi: population characteristics matter

Abstract : Sub-Saharan Africa is facing a double challenge: a dramatic increase of the population on one hand, and an epidemiological transition on the other. The African population is predicted to reach more than 2·6 billion by 2050,1 and the distribution will change from a predominantly rural population to a mostly urban one. Meanwhile, an epidemiological transition is happening in sub-Saharan Africa, with an increase in the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs)—including cardiovascular disease, cancer, and metabolic disorders—driven by common risk factors.
