Assessment of capacity for chronic noncommunicable diseases prevention and control of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Organizations in China



Assessment of capacity for chronic noncommunicable diseases prevention and control of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Organizations in China



Zhonghua Liu Xing Bing Xue Za Zhi 31(10): 1125-1129



To evaluate the capacity for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) prevention and control in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCs) in China. All CDCs in China, including provincial, city and county CDCs were surveyed by questionnaires designed by China CDC including resource provided, capacity and efforts for NCDs. (1) RESOURCE: 7483 staff members worked on NCDs prevention and control, only accounting for 4.0% of all the CDCs' personnel; 23.6% of the staff members devoted their time to NCDs control less than 6 months in 2008. Fundings for NCDs prevention and control only accounted for 2.29%, 1.70% and 2.69% of the total funds of provincial, city and county CDCs, respectively. (2) Capacity: The proportions of CDCs that had professional institutes of NCD at provincial, city and county level were 100.0%, 62.8% and 43.7% respectively. CDCs mainly cooperated with health agencies regarding NCDs prevention and control programs. 34.7% of the staff members had educational background of college undergraduate or higher, 12.1% had senior professional titles, 61.7% of them worked for NCDs less than 5 years. The average person-times of continuing education in NCDs were 21.90, 4.60 and 1.68 at the provincial, city and county CDCs respectively. 8.7% of the CDCs sent their staff members for advanced studies on NCDs. All provincial CDCs carried out surveillance but only 4.2% of them published reports of NCDs in all the CDCs during the past three years. (3) Efforts: 43.5% and 30.8% of the county CDCs carried out surveillance and intervention of NCDs respectively in 2008. RESOURCEs for NCDs prevention and control were quite limited in CDCs. Fundings and staff members for NCDs were not enough, compared to the heavy disease burden of NCDs. Capacity for NCDs prevention and control need to be improved.
