National NCD program managers from Ministries of Health who were designated to participate in the CARMEN 2012 biennial meeting provided the country capacity information contained in this report, by responding to a written survey conducted by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) between March – April, 2012. Information presented in these reports is also from the PAHO publication NCDs: Basic Indicators, 2011 as well as the PAHO mortality database. Each country profile provides demographic information, data on NCD risk factors and premature mortality, national policies and plans, surveillance, health services and medicines related to NCDs. Each individual country profile is presented in alphabetical order.
