This report, on the other hand, focuses on potential NCD prevention and control strategies of the Department of Health (DOH) with wider multisector involvement.This report is divided into five chapters. Chapters I and II discuss the current status of noncommunicable diseases and existing policies and programs of the DOH. Chapter III introduces the potential roadmap of the NCD prevention and control program of the DOH. Chapter IV defines the roles and responsibilities of different bureaus within the health sector. Chapter V outlines the potential framework of the multisector strategy of the DOH.
