The author reflects on the Double Burden of Disease as the health face of the new India which has to be confronted as such. He cites efforts of the World Health Organization (WHO) to alert on this problem through its 2008-2013 Global Strategy and Action Plan for Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs). He notes calls for a more comprehensive response combining work on the determinants of health and effective preventive and nonpreventive personal and population health services.
