Poverty and development interventions that address behavioural risk factors of non-communicable diseases in low and lower middle income countries: a systematic review

Abstract:
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) disproportionately affect low and lower middle income countries (LLMICs), where 80% of global NCD deaths occur. LLMICs are the primary focus of interventions to address development and poverty indicators. We aimed to synthesise the evidence of the impact of these interventions on the four primary behavioural risk factors for NCDs—unhealthy diets, physical inactivity, tobacco use, and alcohol use.
