Experts Urge Global Action Against Chronic Diseases
专家呼吁共同防治非传染性疾病

原文地址:http://www.unsv.com/voanews/english/scripts/2011/04/08/0884/

Infectious diseases like AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis get a lot of attention worldwide. But another group of illnesses is even more deadly. Now, an international group of health experts says the time has come to take concerted action against non-communicable diseases.
传染性疾病例如艾滋病、疟疾和结核病,在全世界受到广泛关注。但是还有一类死亡率更高的非传染性疾病。一个国际机构的卫生专家说,现在是采取联合行动防治这些非传染性疾病的时候了。

The diseases include heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes. Together, these non-communicable or chronic diseases represent a major cause of death, and they aren't just diseases of wealthy, industrialized countries.
这些疾病包括心脏病、中风、癌症,以及糖尿病。这些非传染性或者称慢性疾病加在一起,是导致死亡的主要死因。而它们并不只是富人和工业化国家的疾病。


McKee is one of 44 co-authors of a paper describing the challenge of non-communicable diseases. Writing online in The Lancet, they set out a program to reduce the death toll by two percent a year.
马丁·麦克齐是有关非传染性疾病研究报告的44名撰写人之一。他们在《柳叶刀》网站上写道,他们制定了一个每年减少死亡率百分之2的计划。

As many as 36 million lives could be saved over the course of a decade, McKee says, if priority is given to five major public health goals.
如果能把五项公共卫生目标列为首要工作,在未来10年中,将可以挽救3,600万个生命。

"tobacco control, reduction of salt in the diet, more generally improving diets and physical activity, reducing hazardous alcohol consumption, and insuring that people have access to essential drugs and to technologies."
麦克齐说:“这五个目标是:烟草控制,饮食中减少盐的份量,更普遍地改善饮食和运动,减少有害的酒精消费,以及确保人人可以获得必需的药品的医疗手段。”

Those goals are challenging, and Martin McKee says it will require committed leadership.
麦克齐指出,这些目标都具有挑战性,需要国家领导人的承诺。

"If you look at the remarkable achievements that have been made in a number of industrialized countries in recent years, then it becomes clear that changes can happen, and changes can happen relatively quickly. So I would say changing the mindset to recognize what is possible to be done."
他说:“如果你注意到某些工业化国家近年来取得的杰出成就,很明显,这些变化是能够出现的,而且很快就能出现。所以我说,要改变心态,认识到哪些事情是可以做到的。”

The action plan for non-communicable diseases comes ahead of a high-level United Nations meeting set for September to focus on the issue.
非传染性疾病的行动计划已经推出,而今年9月联合国将举行一次高级别会议,专门讨论这个问题。
