NCD Risk factor
Burden of NCDs
The Indian NCD Network (INN) is a non-profit organization that was created with the aim of networking scientists working in the field of NCD and to support research and training activities on NCD in India.
There has been a big shift in the health burden of the country with a change from communicable to non-communicable diseases (NCDs). High level officials from the Government of India and from World Health Organization [WHO] met on March 11, 2005 at Chennai during the 3rd Madras Diabetes Research Foundation – University of Alabama National Seminar on “Epidemiology of Non-communicable diseases” to discuss about the health burden due to NCDs. The members felt the need of constituting a network of professionals with expertise in NCDs for capacity building, for conducting high class research in NCDs in India as well as to formulate health care policies for preventing NCD in India. The team felt that the members of the network must be eminent scientists, researchers and policy makers who work on non-communicable diseases (NCD) particularly diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer as they are critical health problems in India where  more research and prevention programs are urgently needed.
