Reconsidering Health in All Policies (HiAP) to Tackle Non-communicable Diseases: Lessons From Indonesia

This Policy Brief was first published in https://t20ind.org


Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are responsible for more than 70 percent of all deaths worldwide, with 41 million deaths per year. The economic impact of NCD treatments and deaths is significant, resulting in a total economic loss of approximately US$47 trillion between 2010-2030. Addressing NCDs requires a multi-sectoral approach, as it involves many sectors beyond health. The Health in All Policies (HiAP) framework provides a comprehensive approach to addressing NCD risks. Unfortunately, in many countries like Indonesia, cooperation between health and non-health sectors is still fragmented due to factors such as a lack of political commitment and low awareness of the impact of other sectors on health. The G20 should strengthen its efforts at promoting the HiAP framework, as well as consolidating investments in NCD prevention and treatment among its member countries.
