AbstractNon-communicable diseases are a major and growing morbidity and mortality burden globally. This roundtable session will discuss key terms and definitions, formulate a rationale for the surveillance of non-communicable diseases and attempt to elicit participant's experiences in the surveillance of these conditions. It will discuss where and how existing surveillance efforts may be exploited in non-communicable disease surveillance and where unique surveillance methods may be needed to establish cost-effective and sustainable methods for longitudinal tracking of non-communicable diseases.
