"A non-communicable disease, or NCD, is a medical condition or disease which by definition is non-infectious and cannot be passed from person to person. NCDs may be chronic diseases of long duration and slow progression, or they may result in more rapid death such a sudden stroke. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the four main types of non-communicable diseases are cardiovascular diseases (like heart attacks and stroke), cancer, chronic respiratory diseases (such as chronic obstructed pulmonary disease and asthma) and diabetes." - South African Gov, What is a non-communicable disease?, accessed August 2019,
