Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the most prominent cause of morbidity and mortality world wide . According to the Global Burden of Disease study, NCDs were responsible for the deaths of 38 million people in 2013. Forty-two percent of NCD deaths occurred among people under 70 years of age and of those deaths, 82% were in the low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).Like many other developing countries, in Bangladesh also non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are emerging as major cause of morbidity and mortality, accounting for 61% of deaths . The most common NCDs include cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, cancer, and chronic respiratory diseases. As the prevalence of these diseases increase, they will impose an even greater burden in the near future . In response to these emerging trends, the Government of Bangladesh has designed and introduced some innovative initiatives. A substantial number of policy documents have been published to address the critical issues related to the prevention and control of NCDs; Though BITID is the tropical and infectious disease institute but there is a NCD (non communicable disease) department in this institute.
From January 2019 BITID has started a NCD clinic. In this clinic we are monitoring and recording data on Blood pressure, weight, height and BMI.
Total 40672 patients take service from the NCD of BITID in 2019.
