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: The top ten causes of death in high-income countries and the GCC region were found to be comparable, as shown in Figure 2.4 The data in this figure indicate that the disease burden in the GCC region is similar to the global burden, in that ischemic heart disease, which is first on the list, is responsible for 158 deaths per 100,000 population, followed by stroke, which accounts for around 95 deaths per 100,000 population.4 When relating these data to Qatar, it can be seen that the overall number of deaths declined between 2001 and 2007. This coincided with an increase in life expectancy from 77 in 2000 to 79 in 2012.9 This overall reduction in the actual number of deaths and the increase in life expectancy in Qatar (and in other GCC countries)
