According to WHO, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) kill 41 million people each year, equivalent to 71% of all deaths globally. Detection, screening and treatment of NCDs, as well as palliative care, are key components of the response to NCDs. Community centers in Mauritius began a free medical screening campaign for early detection and treatment of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). This initiative aims at sensitising and educating the public against the risk-related factors, complications and prevention measures of NCDs. It comprises screening for NCDs, breast and cervical cancers and cholesterol. Medical screening is important for the welfare of the population. Early detection of NCDs is vital in terms of precautionary measures to be taken to reduce disease burden.
