164. Health promotion and disease prevention will form an important aspect of contributing to the reduction in the burden of disease and rising costs of healthcare. The NDP 2030 envisions promoting health and wellness as critical, preventing and managing diseases of lifestyle that are likely to pose a major threat over the next three decades. Optimal collaboration between stakeholders from government and non-government sectors is required to address the risk factors that contribute to diseases of lifestyle. The National Health Commission will be established through an enabling framework to ensure the required multi-sectoral collaboration.
