This program was developed from the need that medical students should join the fight against NCD’s and actively work on reduction of this burden. NCD’s, and unhealthy lifestyles as main NCD’s risk factors pose a major strain on every nations healthcare system and take a central part of their health programs. Often young people, medical students, in particular, aren’t as involved in shaping and implementation of this programs as they should be. This is a missed opportunity since medical students present a group that is already playing a major role in prevention and treatment of NCD’s, and they should be educated about NCD’s, and methods of their suppression, early in their medical curricula.
