Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are a broad group of ailments, including cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), cancer, diabetes and complications, obesity, chronic kidney disease (CKD), neurodegenerative disorders, and chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs). Globally, NCDs are the leading determinant of mortality, with ~41 million deaths/year out of 55 million. NCDs’ worldwide epidemic poses a challenge to the healthcare systems of all nations. In India, the NCD-associated mortality is around 5.8 million/year. The impact of NCDs in India has changed, with communicable diseases declining and NCDs rising significantly. NCDs are generally chronic and may occur due to lifestyle, genetic, and environmental factors. The paucity of reliable NCD monitoring is a major obstacle to effective NCD prevention/management planning and implementation. The current global challenges in the domain of NCDs are the identification and validation of new druggable targets and lead compounds.
This conference will address the global challenges and current trends for NCDs, emphasizing diabetes and complications, CVDs, CKD, CRDs, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders. Further, the conference will highlight advances in current and emerging strategies for discovering novel targets and drugs for NCDs. The conference will include lectures by experts from academia, national research labs, and industry. The delegates will be given the opportunity to present their work as posters and oral presentations.
