80pc deaths are NCD related: MOH The Ministry for Health says that at least 6000 people die from non-communicable diseases annually.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong said non-communicable diseases have remained the leading cause of death accounting for over 80 per cent of fatalities per year.

Speaking at the non-communicable diseases alliance meeting at Albert Park yesterday, Dr Fong said many people die from non-communicable diseases which have affected the lives of many more.

“Potential for worsening trends will continue unless we take preemptive actions. The non-communicable disease has been the leading cause of disease and disability,” he said.

“For a very long time, we have been unable to address and mostly due to the fact that there are multi-sectorial factors that contribute to the increasing burden of non-communicable diseases.

“Non-communicable diseases are not just health issue but a whole of society issue and development issue. The economic costs associated with it are alarming.

“It costs the Fijian economy in the range of $248.6 to $406.4 million in 2015. This is equivalent to 4.4 per cent of the country’s 2015 gross domestic product,” he said.

He said the social impact of the disease is exemplified by the terrible truth that the community in Fiji either suffers from one or more non-communicable diseases.
