Small Island Developing States Data Portal

Small island developing states (SIDS) are a set of islands and coastal states that share similar sustainable development challenges as a result of their size, geography and vulnerability to climate change. Forty WHO Member States are classified as SIDS. These countries are disproportionately among those with the highest risk of dying prematurely from any of the four main noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) – namely cardiovascular diseases (heart disease and stroke), cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases. This site allows users to explore the burden of NCDs in these 40 SIDS, providing detail on the morbidity and mortality of the main NCDs as well as the prevalence of their key underlying risk factors and information on the actions these countries have or have not taken to address NCDs.
