Impact of noncommunicable diseases in the State of Qatar.

Al-Kaabi SK, Atherton A - Clinicoecon Outcomes Res (2015)

Bottom Line: The total direct and indirect costs to the Gulf Cooperation Council calculated for the above five NCDs were $36.2 billion in 2013, which equates to 150% of the officially recorded annual health care expenditure.If this trajectory is maintained, spending per head of population in Qatar will reach $2,778 by 2022.These figures demonstrate not only the potential financial impact of the main NCDs, but also give an idea of how the current health system is working to address them.

ABSTRACT
This study, commissioned by the Supreme Council of Health in the State of Qatar, focuses on the main noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) globally and regionally, in order to gauge their potential impact on Qatar. The research shows that the Gulf Cooperation Council is projected to be affected dramatically by NCDs in the coming years. The top five NCDs that will affect Qatar in terms of economic burden and disability-adjusted life years are cardiovascular diseases, mental health and behavioral disorders, cancer, respiratory diseases, and diabetes. Whilst these diseases have diverse effects on patients, their causes can be traced to "… common lifestyle-related, or behavioral, risk factors such as tobacco use, a diet heavy in fat, and physical inactivity". The total direct and indirect costs to the Gulf Cooperation Council calculated for the above five NCDs were $36.2 billion in 2013, which equates to 150% of the officially recorded annual health care expenditure. If this trajectory is maintained, spending per head of population in Qatar will reach $2,778 by 2022. These figures demonstrate not only the potential financial impact of the main NCDs, but also give an idea of how the current health system is working to address them.

Mentions: Overall, chronic NCDs were responsible for around 68% of the 56 million deaths recorded across the globe in 2012.4Figure 1 shows the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of the four main NCDs, ie, cardiovascular diseases, chronic lung diseases, cancer, and diabetes, in terms of causes of death in 2012.4 In that year, cardiovascular disease alone was responsible for around 7.4 million deaths, respiratory cancers for 1.6 million (2.7%) deaths, and diabetes for 1.5 million (2.7%) deaths.
