Almost three quarters of all NCD deaths, and 82% of the 16 million people who died prematurely, or before reaching 70 years of age, occur in low- and middle-income countries. The rise of NCDs has been driven by primarily four major risk factors: tobacco use, physical inactivity, the harmful use of alcohol and unhealthy diets  .Furthermore, as many people are affected by mental health and neurological disorders including depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar, schizophrenia and dementia as NCD’s (WHO 2018).
