As the reports shows the burden of NCDs increase from 30 - 55%. Hence there is a need of screening and monitoring NCD risk factors to reduce the NCD burden on community.

The prevalence of hypertension, diabetes and CKD was 88.2%, 20.16% and 24.3% respectively. Hypertriglyceridemia was observed in 38.6% of subjects. Conclusions: More attention is needed in the management of NCDs risk factors to reduce the prevalence and progression of NCDs.
