Remarks by Mr. Nick Beresford: Cambodia Framework Convention on Tobacco Control 2030 Launch
Feb 9, 2018
UNDP Cambodia are very pleased to be a key partner in the FCTC 2030 project. Our interest in the issue stems from the growing recognition that tobacco control is a quintessentially multisectoral development challenge. We see it as being about more than health. While the most direct impacts of tobacco use are in health, the long-term effects extend throughout the Sustainable Development Agenda – from exacerbating inequalities, deepening poverty, slowing economic growth and even compounding environmental damage.

Prevention of noncommunicable diseases in Cambodia
Aug 7, 2017
The past century witnessed a global revolution in the control of communicable diseases. This was accomplished by improved access to clean water and sanitation, and by applying new scientific knowledge to population-based public health strategies and services, such as universal vaccine coverage to protect children against diseases such as measles and polio. In the 21st Century, the unprecedented rise of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), particularly diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and chronic respiratory disease, pose a new and urgent threat that may overwhelm these gains.
