A report conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) has found that the incidence of chronic disease has surpassed infectious disease in causing deaths around the world. WHO has called on governments to focus health expenditure on reducing the impact of chronic disease including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, to avoid future economic decline secondary to a premature loss of the workforce. Chronic diseases were initially associated with high income countries, but their impact is also being felt in lower income countries normally plagued by infectious diseases as malaria, tuberculosis and AIDS.
