Some new Facts
ACCORDING to the World Health Organization’s WHO Glo al “tatus Report on Non-communicable Diseases
2014, 82% of the 16 million premature deaths linked to non-communicable diseases (NCDs) occur in low- and
middle-income countries.
In the Philippines, 57% of total deaths ere due to the fatal four NCDs: ardio as ular disease, an er,
diabetes, and chronic respiratory disease. It is estimated that 35% to 50% of NCD-linked deaths in the
Philippines occurred before patients reached the age of 60.

Among Filipino adults, the current prevalence of NCD risk factors are: overweight and obesity (27%);
hypertension (25%); high blood sugar (5%); and high total cholesterol level (10%).

Obesity Rates
The number of obese children and adolescents has also been on the rise in the Philippines -- and the rest of the
world -- over the last decade. Results of nutritional surveys among Filipinos reveal slow but steady increasing rates
of childhood overweight and obesity cases.
The 8th National Nutrition Survey showed that the prevalence of overweight among Filipino children zero to five
years old has significantly risen from 1% in 1989 to 5% in 2013; the prevalence of overweight Filipino children five
to 10 years old, which was 5.8% in 2003, jumped to 9.1% in 2013.
The 2011 Global School-based Health Survey also indicated that about 13% of adolescents in the Philippines are
overweight and obese.
