Noncommunicable diseases pose the greatest threat to the health of the people in the WHO European Region, yet this is an area where the greatest health gains are available at relatively modest cost.

While originally developed to support countries in implementing the WHO European Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases, the insights are likely to be of benefit to a much wider audience.Copenhagen, WHO Regional Office for Europe, 2004 (http://www.euro.who.int/ document/ e84884.pdf, accessed 12 April 2009). 18.
