Risk of Dying Prematurely from NCDs


Goal 3 of the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDG) is to "Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages". Target 3.4 is: By 2030, reduce by one-third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being. Premature mortality from NCDs, measured as the unconditional probability of dying at exact ages of 30 to 70 years from any of the four major NCDs (cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes, and chronic respiratory diseases) is the indicator (3.4.1) to monitor progress on the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases.

This visualization allows readers to explore the level, distribution, and trends of the probability of dying prematurely from all-noncommunicable diseases, the four major NCDs (cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes mellitus, and chronic respiratory diseases) for two age ranges (from 30 to 70 years of age, and from birth to 80 years of age) by sex in countries of the Region of the Americas from 2000 to 2019.
