Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), also known as chronic diseases, are not contagious. According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recent report, it is found that over 20 percent of the country’s population suffers from at least one of the non-communicable diseases or chronic diseases, such as cancer, heart ailments, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes. Like developed countries, India is fast becoming a country where more number of deaths are caused by non-communicable diseases than communicable diseases.
