This course is multidisciplinary in nature, and aims to equip the global audience of interested lay people, people with chronic disease, public health researchers, health clinicians, students, administrators, and researchers to reflect on the overall impact of the burden of chronic disease . It shows how all chronic diseases (obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cancer) are related by a set of common causes, and that such diseases should be tackled, not individually, but as part of a complex system, with interrelated contributing factors. These factors are genetic, environmental, psychological, economic, social, developmental, and media related.

Great course. the only thing that discouraged me is peer assignments, waiting and waiting for someone to mark my work.
This helped me to understand the nature of NCDs, as well as the things we can do to prevent ourselves from being prey to these
Excellent course. I especially like the assignments where participants were asked to design intervention programs based on the case options that were presented.
A very informative course ! Loved the quiz and peer graded assignment .
