By MERE NALEBA
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Update: 5:00PM NATIONAL National adviser for non-communicable disease(NCD) Dr Isimeli Tukana believes it is important to improve a person's lifestyle earlier in life as this is a key factor in battling NCDs in the country.

Dr Tukana says NCD is 80 per cent lifestyle while the other 20 per cent of the disease can be medically treated.

He also called on youth leaders, members of the inter faith-based organisations and members of the civil society to help control and or completely eradicate NCD.

Dr Tukana was speaking at a workshop focused on educating members of the public on the disadvantages and the health risks associated with consuming Sugar Sweetened Beverages (SSBs).
