styles change.
Developed countries have been implementing interventional programs based on proper nutrition, appropriate physical activity, Tobacco control and stress management, in this way they have controlled these disease in their communities. An interventional program for prevention of NCD called “Isfahan Healthy Heart Program” has been implemented since 2001 in Isfahan and Najafabad, which involve not only CVD but also hypertension, diabetes, obesity, hyperlipidemia and cancers.
This community-based interventional project has made an effort to prevent increasing rate of NCD through increasing the knowledge of the population about healthy nutrition, physical activity, cigarette cessation and stress management methods.

These publications arean effort to increase not only the readers' knowledge,but also provide them with general informationabout NCD and healthy lifestyle.
