Abstract: According to WHO, nearly 52 percent of deaths and 38 percent burden of diseases (BOD) in South East Asia Region (SEAR) are related to Non communicable Disease (NCDs). Particularly, cardiovascular disorders, cancer, diabetes mellitus, chronic lungs disease and conditions arising from accidents and injuries are in the top in the region. Degenerative and non communicable diseases in Nepal accounted for 42 percent of the causes of all deaths and contributes 23 percent to the loss of all Disability adjusted life years (DALYs). It has also been estimated that within 15 years, degenerative and all other NCDs would account for almost 30 percent of the total DALYs lost. Nepal World Health Survey (2002) data revealed that non communicable disease death toll was 41.96 percent of all deaths.
